Dry cook in slow cooker?

Hi. I was wondering if anyone has ever dry cooked meat in a slow cooker. Without wanting to waste food, my thought was that if I was to wrap whatever meat I was cooking in foil, raise slightly from the bottom of the dish and then cook for however many hours on Low. Would this work like a smoker with the foil helping to retain the moisture in the meat? Would this just dry the meat out completely? Any advise would be welcomed. Thanks 👍

I always start out cooking my meat dry in one of my slow cookers. Sometimes I mop, but most often I wrap in foil after I think it has taken on all the smoke it can. I usually add some liquid to the foil and place it back on until it is done. I usually let folks apply sauce to the finished meat. Most often I use pork as my wife doesn't like brisket cooked this way.
