I now recall the reason I gave my first crock pot away - 2 setting, high and low. Ugg. My broth boiled, I turned it down (chicken bone broth) and it kept a steady, albeit low, boil (definitely not a simmer). I am thinking that I just need to turn it down to "warm", wait for the boil to subside, then turn it on to low. I did NOT like the smell of this when it continued this low rolling boil. I also read that perhaps I don't EVER need it to quite hit the "boil" mark - perhaps turn it down to low once it is "just about there".

Crock pot/bone broth makers - can you offer any words of advisement here? Thank you so much for sharing you experiences and ideas!
