Trim ribs of excess fat. Season with salt, pepper and paprika. Layer seasoned pork and onions in ceramic pot of Cuisinart® Slow Cooker, ending with a layer of onions. Add water. Cover and press the on/off button to turn the unit on. Set time to 10 to 12 hours and press Low; slow cooker will automatically switch to Warm when cooking time has elapsed. Pork should be tender and falling off the bone. Transfer pork to a shallow food storage container. Strain liquid and discard onions. Pour liquid over pork. Cover and refrigerate. When chilled, the fat will solidify and rise to the top. Lift off and discard. Remove pork from liquid (which will have gelled); reserve liquid for another use such as soups. Pull pork from bones; discard bones. Trim off and discard fat. Shred pork and place in ceramic pot of Cuisinart® Slow Cooker. Add 2 to 3 cups Barbecue Sauce; stir. Cook for 3 hours on Low or 2 hours on High. Serve on Warm.
