Cooking with a crock pot may be the single greatest (and easiest) thing ever.
You can take a frozen meat of choice, throw it in along with veggies, spices or anything else your little heart desires. Set it and forget it, and in 4-10 hours you’ll have a delicious treat.
Though cooking in a crock pot is nothing new, in recent years creative ways to use a crock pot have started to spread – especially when it comes to the tailgating world.
Everything from dips, sides, boiled peanuts, breakfast and more can all be made in a crock pot, making for an easier tailgating experience without sacrificing on taste.
