This was mediocre at best. To be fair, I did change things a bit. I am awarding 3 *'s due to my 1 major change (but honestly, this is only deserving of 2). Drumsticks were on sale, so I used those instead of a whole bird. In retrospect, I really wish I would have tried suessinimi's recipe as is, but for fear of my chicken drying out, I didn't (a good dose of common sense & others warnings about meat drying out as it cooked all day scared me off). I think the BBQ sauce slathered in the chicken's cavity would have made for some AWESOME tasting meat (assuming it remained moist). My chicken, although not dry, was totally unappealing. If it weren't for me & my hubby being HUNGRY, we'd probably not have even eaten what was in the crockpot. My biggest gripe? Although I used an entire (regular sized) bottle of BBQ sauce (K.C. Masterpiece hickory), my chicken wasn't saucy at all! It's as if the sauce evaporated & left a burnt smelling crust behind. I guess removing the skin from my chicken wasn't such a good idea after all.... My advice? Add H2O w/ your BBQ sauce (and lots of it, especially if you're going to leave this to cook all day) & DON'T remove the skin from your bird! Served w/ all the BBQ fixins, this was an "OK" meal. I certainly wouldn't make this again unless "as directed" & I were home all day to monitor the sc (which kinda defeats the purpose of using one to begin with, IMHO) so I probably won't be attempting this again for that very reason. Thanks for sharing tho! :-)
