    Yep, use mine for Chili, bbq pulled pork, soups. Love it. 

    You did gain far too much fat though,I mean,you're not muscular at all,you're just a fat mess.

    My standard slow-cooker meal is:
     
    - 400g skinless & boneless chicken thighs
    - Two large baking potatoes (chopped - skin left on)
    - Two large carrots (chopped - skin left on)
    - A large leek (chopped)
    - Two knorr chicken stockpots
    - A lump of butter
    - Olive oil
    - Salt and pepper
    - 1.5ltrs boiling water
     
    Leave for 10-12 hours. Done. It is immense.

    Doesnt anyone use a pressure cooker?  You can get the same results as a slow cooker but waaaay faster and more efficient

    I have a slow cooker but I hardly use it... However, I'm interested in getting some beef brisket or beef chuck-eye roll and cooking it up in there.
     
    I'm not really a fan of stews or casseroles though, and prefer things with dry rubs on, so I'm guessing I would need to oven cook these cuts instead.
     
    I watch too much Man V Food where they use dry rubs and stuff.
     
    Anyone got any tips on those cuts or recipes please? Meaty hugs to you all.

    I've used mine a few times, but I get put off as the food comes out a bit soggy... - think I'm doing something wrong

    I used to walk into a room full of people & wonder if they liked me..... Now I look around & wonder if I like them

    Dr Pepper pulled pork - 
     
    Take one pork shoulder joint, rub with salt, pepper and garlic salt, place in slow cooker on top of a sliced onion and pour a can of Dr Pepper over it. Cook for 7-8 hours, take it out, remove all the fat and shred the meat, put a load of BBQ sauce on it and back in the cooker with the juices (drain some so it's not too wet) and cook another 30-60 minutes. Awesome.

    Not a fan. Most slow cookers have non stick coating that when left to heat for hours on end causes cancer causing carcinogens to leech into your food and slowly kill you. I prefer to steam or bake in stainless steel or copper.

    They're really good for lamb - gets lamb nice n tender. I usually par boil veg though, doesn't cook carrots very well for some reason. Doesn't thicken sauce much either so I usually finish off with some gravy granules or just flour mixed with cold water.

    You sure? every slow cooker I've had has been ceramic. 

    You did gain far too much fat though,I mean,you're not muscular at all,you're just a fat mess.

    I brought one recently, love it.
     
    Shredded Chicken with Buffalo sauce, Shredded Chicken with Nandos Piri Piri, Pulled pork (BBQ sauce and some rub) and Gammon cooked in coke are the only things I've done in it so far, all were pretty damn good.
     
    I brought it mainly just to cook big bits of meat/poultry as I don't have a proper oven (and microwave ovens are useless for everything apart from pizza). I'm still cooking Spagbol, Chilli con Carne etc the old fashion way (stove).

       
    Consistency is key
