    i keep a camera in the kitchen. i play with it (the camera and food). at this point, i bet i could make a spam sandwich look good.

    bonus points if you have a kitchen window that faces north. the lighting would be superior.

    i used to be a pro photographer. now i am a civil engineer. more boring, but i get to play with the camera, not make a living with it.

    Haha, I was thinking about taking some pics of me cooking spam to be a smart ass but I dont think I will. Maybe a pic of boiling water would be better?

    Hey before I go and try and look up a thousand recipes on how to cook a roast in the crock pot, I want to get my roast to where it is super tender enough to cut with a fork. Whenever I crock pot a roast, it comes out pretty hard. I know there is a certain method to get the meat tender. Tips anyone?

    easy bro. you are (95% sure about this) buying the wrong part of the pig. you absolutely need the shoulder. called different things..boston butt, butt roast, etc. dont let "butt" fool you. back in the day, it was called the butt of the leg or something.

    you need the fat and connective tissue to break down and create the soft tender juicy roast. i bet you are either trying a tenderloin or rear hind part.

    before you use a crock pot, brown the veggies. with pork you dont need to brown the meat. but it would help to brown the veggies before you dump everything in the crock pot. if you use any tomato paste, brown it at the end of your veggie saute.

    ^ If you are wanting a pork roast?

    You do have to buy the right kind of roast, but I would have to know what exactly you do to do it wrong. Roasts are very easy, but one step missed could ruin it. After getting the right roast, the first thing you want to do is salt and pepper the outside, and sear and brown the edges in a pan (helps to lock in the right amount of juices). Put your veggies in the pot (carrotts, celery, potatoes, onion, and whatever else you want). Place your roast on top of the veggies and season with what ever you like. Fill with just about a half inch of water (if even that amount). SET IT, and FORGET IT!!!

    Make sure you are not cooking too long for what ever size raost you are doing, and don't forget veggies like the carrot, onion, and celery; whether you eat the veggies or not they add a ton of flavor!

    What the guy after you said... probably has to do with the amount of liquid and length of time you're cooking it for.

    I made this recipe last weekend, and it turned out amazing - followed the recipe, but finished it in a crock pot instead of the oven.

    made mashed potatoes and roasted carrots with it.

    This was from Mardi Gras, my wife and I had a night without the kids, so we went to get some stuff for our own party. Went for Crawfish and stuff for Gumbo, decided on lobster when we got there. Anyways, our little Mardi Gras feast, home made shrimp Gumbo, Grilled lobster, and Hurricanes!
