Honey Chipotle Slow Cooker Ribs

Holy Moly these are amazing. There's just no words to how good they are, the barbecue sauce is out of this world, though a little spicy, so if you don't like spice you may want to omit the chipotle peppers.  Des suggests using only half of the chipotle and adding more honey if you want it not too spicy.
