    As my wife is a crockpot cook it dawned on me that a smoker is similar in the low and slow cooking style. Especially for us with Uds, electric, or pellet smokers. So my question is have anyone of you tried a "crockpot" recipe in your smoker?

    Yep! That's how I came up with the pork roast I do. While out a deer camp our crock pot broke, so I put the pork roast, and all of the veggies into a foil pan. Dumped a bottle of Italian dressing over it and stuck it into a 225-250 degree pit. Quite a few hours later it was falling apart and everyone raved.

    I still do it, but now I leave it open to smoke for the first couple of hours.

    Sounds good I may have to go through my wife's crockpot cookbooks

    I think just about any recipe can be adapted to a smoker.

    Probably right on that one al. Just figured with the temp/hands off nature of crockpot cooking it would be the easiest batch of recipes to try
