My wife use to use the crock pot method
Never again. I have said on other post that it is hard to find good racks of beef ribs here. But we do get great invidual beef bone or short ribs. I tend to marinade in Mojo, then into an aluminum pan for the smoke process. Come out pretty darn good that way. Did you do 3-2-1?
Might have to spring for Jeffs rub. What all do you get?
