    I ate at the Circus Circus buffet last week, no issues. I come home and accidentally had a few bites of chicken (home cooked meal) before realizing it was under cooked. I'm not as sick as I could have been, but, I'm still miserable. :thumbsdown:

    You know just because chicken might have a tinge of pink inside, doesn't mean it is under cooked. The same with pork.
     
    Give Suncoast another try.

    It was actually under cooked. Everything in the crockpot looked good, the outside looked good. A few bites in I realized it wasn't done. That chicken is all I can taste still. I'm going to check the temp on that crockpot, it's newer, I suspect the temp controls are unpredictable.

    Crock pot temperatures can vary wildly. I was looking on You Tube at Corned Beef and Cabbage recipes and one said on HIGH for 8 hours. B.S. The corned beef would be a pile of mush in the bottom of the pot. Another said 8 hours on low. So, it's all pretty much guess work, sometimes.

    I know my tried and true Kielbasa and Sour Kraut takes 5 and a half hours on LOW so that's all I'm worried about.

    I decided to do the CB & C on the stovetop like I always do.

    I'm a big, longtime crockpot user and have several of them in various sizes. You have to know your pot. This one seems unpredictable because I thought it ran hot/fast based on previous meals.

    If you like that then I think you'll love Bigos.

    Tip: It tends to taste best about 4 days after originally being cooked.

    I find that the best way to cook chicken is to boil if first, especially if you're going to griill.

    I make the best Cock-pot Boston Baked Beans in the whole freakin' world. About 12 hours on low.
