good evening buzzers. i had 8 chicken leg quarters that i baked, then cleaned all the chicken off of the bones, roasted the bones, then threw them into the crock pot to make stock. i didn't have my thinking cap on, though. i started the crock at about5pm tonite. if i turn it off now, i won't be cooled in time to put in the fridge before bed. my question is, can i leave it going overnite and turn it off in the morn.? thanks a munch :)

I would put it on low over night and wouldn't think twice about it.

Basic Chicken Stock

Submitted by: Logan 
Onions, celery, carrots and whole cloves are simmered with bony chicken pieces in this recipe which yields a little more than a quart of rich stock to use in soups or sauces.

In my opinion YES! The longer it goes the more flavorful the stock will be. What recipe are you using??

lobster, i threw the bones into the crock pot with a carrot cut up in rough chunks, a celery stalk cut up and an onion quartered skin on, covered with water and that's it. i did drain off all the fat from the roasting pan, then poured hot water into it and scraped all the the brown bits off the bottom of the pan and poured that into the crock as well. i've been making this stock for yrs. always turns out great!

Ooh that's a toughy. Considering that crock pots are left on all day as people go off to work, without an issue, I'd say probably yes. But for me personally, I don't know how well I could sleep knowing that it's on. Of course, this is coming from a woman who doesn't even own a crock pot, so maybe take what I said with a grain of salt?
