    That's how I do my beef, the juice from it cooks it fine and it's never dry. Does chicken work the same?

    I do chicken in my crockpot all the time. Fall-off-the-bone yummy.

    Yep... although drumsticks won't be drumsticks when you're done... the meat will just fall apart when you take them out.

    Yeah, it works fine, but if you like crispy skin the oven works better.

    Absolutely! You can also toss a bit of chicken stock or homemade Italian dressing in to make it even yummier.

    Ok thanks guys. I put the chicken in there straight on top of some garlic, sprinkled it with bbq seasoning and added a very small amount of water. I've just come home and they are almost covered in liquid. Should I empty the excess and carry on cooking or just leave it? I'm really surprised at the amount of liquid to be honest.

    Gotta agree with slesca on the skin (my favorite part when crispy). It's a little more prep work, but I think it might make sense to skin your drumsticks (drum skins?) before they go in the slow cooker. You'd have the skins available to fry up in some hot fat and make chicken cracklins.

    Hey Geoff. My fascination with the slow cooker at the moment is the lack of prep time so until the novelty wears off, I'm throwing them in as they are. Although chicken cracklins mmmmm!-
