Rib Tips Question


New Member
I'm going to be doing a Red Beans recipe in a crockpot. Would smoked rib tips be a good replacement for ham hocks? I have a ton of rib tips from spare ribs in the freezer.
If so, do I cook the rib tips completely on the smoker and then put them in with the beans to cook low and slow for the entirety of the cook?
