To prep the ribs:
Spread rub all over ribs and massage in with your hands.
Wrap in foil or plastic wrap on a baking sheet and let sit overnight in the refrigerator.
To make the honey bourbon BBQ sauce:
Place all sauce ingredients into a medium saucepan over medium heat.
Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sauce has reduced by about one quarter. This will take about 30 minutes.
Place sauce in a high-powered blender and blend until well combined and smooth.
To cook the spare ribs:
Place spare ribs in slow cooker.
Slather with about half of the BBQ sauce.
Cook on low for 8-9 hours, or on high for 4-5 hours.
Once cooked, carefully remove the ribs from slow cooker and place on foil-lined (for easier clean up) baking sheet.
Heat oven to 400 F.
Slather ribs with more of the BBQ sauce and cook for 10-15 minutes in oven until slightly crispy on the edges.
Serve immediately with remaining BBQ sauce.
