Not as fantastic as slow cooking it over smoke, but the extended family is already making requests for a repeat-pressure-cooker performance!
I agree with you and Allen too. Crockpots and Pressure cookers definitely have their place. I use them both for certain things. When I had my last outdoor, full barbecue, smoker and grill setup, I loved to cook that way. Outside under a lovely sky, next to my swimming pool. Nothing better.
Now I am living in a condominium most of the time, so outdoor cooking has a different meaning. I do have two separate balconies. On one I am set up for smoking and Weber stuff. On the other I have a larger gas BBQ grill, on which I mostly cook with the lids wide open.
I love it all. I just love to cook. My wife is a willing guinea pig, so we are both lucky for my love of making lots of good and always different kinds of food. This is a passion I know I share with most of the members of this wonderful group. Thanks a bunch to whoever set it up.
