Had our fantasy football draft on saturday and needed to cook for a crowd, but our weather has not been great for outdoor cooking. Rain.

Slow cooker was the way to go.

2 boston butts about 4.5 lbs each
Marinate with Stubbs pork marinade overnte

2 oven stuffer chckens about 6-7 lbs each
marinate with Stubbs chicken marinade overnite

Friday nite about 11:00 pm put all the cookers on lowand let cook over nite.

The pork was fall apart heaven, the chicken a touch dry,b ut the bbq sauce took care of that.

We made some yellow rice and black beans with it.

I borrowed 2 of them from a friend, flea market would be my guess on finding them. Heres the other.
They were a little harder to control the heat.

That size is so useful. I can't see buying something like that at a flea market, though. As my mother said about so many things, "You don't know where it's been." :)

Why not?

What Jesus invented bleach for.

Good big eats, Patriot45...as usual.

Haha, I am a svelte 235 ! You can get those sport pilsner frosy glasses at the sport paraphenalia store at the mall down here. They're about 10.00 each.

Yes, I just like to have my OWN equipment. That's not so unusual.

Not at all.

But if you want a classic, you have to make compromises, especially when no-one makes it anymore.

I should know... I just paid $46k for a classic that no-one makes anymore.

I won't eat from it ... and I won't eat in it, either. It's that much of a classic, to me.

They still make these pots but most are called graniteware or speckled-ware. They look slightly different but they are the same thing. Just Google it. ;)

It looks like the West Bend slow Cooker I used for years. It was teflon lined and sat on a base. But that looks bigger than a 5 quart.
