    Roast or Brisket
    Line crockpot with aluminum foil.
    Season meat with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
    Put in lined crockpot. Add bottle of liquid smoke and then wrap foil around it. Cook on low 4 to five hours.
    Place in fridge over night.
    Next day slice or shred put back in crock pot and add bottle of bbq sauce.
    Cook until warmed through.

    You can cook a whole chicken too. Just remove neck etc, wash and toss in the pot with whatever spices you desire. You get tender and jucy meat that is cheep and can be eaten and or added to other recipes.

    This is so true! Here's a version of this I found on Weight Watchers years ago:

    Roasted Chicken

    If you don't have a small metal trivet that would fit in your slow cooker, get out the aluminum foil and roll up enough sheets into balls to cover the bottom of the cooker.

    Lay a small fresh chicken or defrosted whole chicken on top of the foil. Spray the chicken all over Pam or the equivilent. Then sprinkle with your favorite spices on it. It's good with McCormick's Smokehouse Maple, but really any mix is fine. Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours. Having the chicken above it's juices makes it have a roasted texture.

    I've done the same set up with just chicken breast. Works beautifully.

    Chile Lime Chicken Adobo - Thighs in the crock pot. Recipe in database. It's easy (10 minutes prep) juicy and delicious. Only 247 calories per serving.

    Slow cook on low for six hours. (or 1 & 1/2 on high and 3 on low. No longer than that on high as it dries out the meat). Use serving spoon to stir and break up into pieces before serving. Makes 6 hearty servings.

    I like to serve with dollop of fat free sour cream, sliced avocado and chopped cilantro. Good over rice.

    **Fewer calories if made with boneless, skinless breasts (180c) but be careful not to dry out. Recommend strictly on low for breasts.

    If you do Facebook at all, look up Skinny Crock Pot. They have tons of GREAT recipes! I just made these two this week:

    Irish Lamb Stew


    2 pounds boneless leg of lamb, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
    1 3/4 pounds white potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
    3 large leeks, white part only, halved, washed (see Tip) and thinly sliced
    3 large carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
    3 stalks celery, thinly sliced
    1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth
    2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    1/4 cup packed fresh parsley leaves, chopped


    Combine lamb, potatoes, leeks, carrots, celery, broth, thyme, salt and pepper in a 6-quart slow cooker; stir to combine. Put the lid on and cook on low until the lamb is fork-tender, about 8 hours. Stir in parsley before serving.
    (It's Delicious!! And the meat turns out SO tender!)

    Balsamic Chicken

    4-6 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
    2 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
    1 onion thinly sliced (Not chopped)
    4 garlic cloves
    1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
    2 tblsp olive oil
    1 tsp each: dried oregano,basil, and rosemary
    1/2 tsp thyme
    ground black pepper and salt to taste


    Pour the olive oil on bottom of crock pot
    place in chicken breasts, salt and pepper each breast
    put sliced onion on top of chicken
    then put in all the dried herbs and garlic cloves
    pour in vinegar and top with tomatoes

    Cook on high 4 hours, serve over angel hair pasta.

    (this can also be slow-cooked over 8 hours. I added a bit more balsamic than called for, plus some fresh spinach under the onions and tomatoes, and it was wonderful!)


    I will definitely be trying this balsamic chicken this week!!

    I bet the lamb one would be great with sweet potatoes!
