Crock-pot Bbq Pit...What do you think??

Does anyone have this Rival Crockpot? I'm interested in it, but wonder if it's worth it. It's quite spendy. Wondering if it's worth it. I have to admit, I love small kitchen appliances. I was thinking of getting this instead of investing in a bigger crock pot because this one has the rack and the grease will drip off the meat. The website below has a cool picture and video that shows the crock pot in detail

What do you guys think???

Thanks!

hahaha, Elf, how did you know. I've already researched where I could find it cheapest! Looks like walmart carries it for less than 90, hopefully I can find it in the store to avoid shipping.

I've decided to be reasonable about this. I've marked my calendar. When I get my next paycheck, if I still really want it, like I do now, I'll let myself go pick it up. And if I do, I will definitely review it for you all.

I'd never seen it until today on tv. I'm not getting anymore kitchen stuff except one of those vacuum packing sets.

I wouldn't call it bbq, no wood, no smoke.

So their slogan of prepare authentic bbq is false advertising.

To be authentic bbq it has to be cooked over wood coals.

Save yourself some money and just use the oven.

I still love my GE 18qt roaster. I use it at least 3x/week. It holds a big turkey just fine, and the meat falls off of the bone. It has a roasting rack as well, and I got this fine piece at WalMart last year for a very cheap price. (It was around maybe $25?)

hahahha Raine, when I posted this, in the back of my mind, I knew you would be shaking your head!

Though to my novice defense, I like the idea of popping it in before I go to work and coming home to tender fall off the bone ribs.

So this is just a regular crock pot with a rack? Dressed up like a little BBQ?

jkath, is yours a crock pot of some sort.

Jenny, yup, just a crock pot with a rack. I am drawn to it 1. because I'm addicted to little counter top appliances and 2. I like the idea of cooking and the grease dripping away.
