"Sounds great, but had a question for those that have made this recipe. 3-4 hours on low heat doesn't sound right. Did it cook through in this amount of time or should it be on the high setting? Thanks everyone!"

"I've made the sauce from this recipe many times since I reviewed it almost 3 years ago. On chicken, or just about any meat - this recipe is a keeper!"

"This was pretty gross. It took way longer for the chicken to cook than was indicated in the recipe. It took 7 hours! And there was absolutely no flavor to the chicken whatsoever. The bar b que sauce looked almost gray and unappetizing, but it lacked flavor too! Was not a hit in my family."

"I tired the recipe last month and made it just sa suggested, with chicken drumsticks. It went over really BIG at my house, even tho we're white meat eaters - plus drums were on sale for only 99 cents a pound that week.

I am trying a variation on this recipe today. I made the barbeque sauce and put it, along with meatballs into the crock pot.
For anyone who likes to experiment, I think this dish could certainly be made with boneless chicken, pork chops, maybe even beef cubes; there's all kinds of possibilities. It's the sauce that makes this dish.
I think it's going to be yummy made with meat balls - but I will let you know for sure after dinner."

dportlu, you SERIOUSLY need to get a life. I mean really, step away from the keyboard and find something better to do with your time, rather than look for things to criticize, do some volunteer work, help the elderly, SOMETHING.
The recipe sounds yummy, cant wait to try it."

""Remove from the heat." Change this to "Remove MIXTURE from the heat."

"Top with sauce." change this to "Top with MIXTURE.". Is this what the recipe is telling you to do?
"...for 2 minutes or until thickened." change this to "...for 2 minutes or until thickened INTO A SAUCE.""
