Really? What is this, some adolescent chat site? I know how to read the directions that were given, I know how to read the weight on a piece of meat, and I know how to turn my crockpot on high. The directions in this article read, "If you crank it out on high you can finish it in about 3-4 hours." Perhaps it's the word "crank" that I misinterpreted. Any insights? How do you know others haven't had problems with this recipe? Maybe I'm the only one who took the time to post. There is no error on my part. I merely shared with readers that a 5-7 pound pork shoulder will NOT be finished in 3-4 hours. Not even close. I wanted others to be aware of this so they could plan accordingly. Sounds like you're just a tad bit defensive there my friend.

This will teach me not to try a recipe for the first time when I'm having guests for dinner! I would have NEVER used this recipe if I had foreseen the disaster ahead! I bought a pork shoulder roast between 5-7 pounds (6.3 in my case), just like the recipe called for. It clearly stated, "If you crank it out on high you can finish it in about 3-4 hours." NOT TRUE!! I checked at 4 hours and it wasn't NEARLY done. Checked an hour later, STILL NOT DONE. Check another hour later, STILL NOT DONE!! I had the rest of my dinner ready at 4 hours and it was now looking disgusting and the pork was clearly not going to be done anytime soon, so I ended up having to send one of my guests to the store to purchase two pre-cooked and prepared chickens because my guests were expecting to eat at 5:00 and it was now 7:30. My crockpot is not the problem. It is only 7-8 months old and I have had EXCELLENT results with everything else I've prepared in it. It is now 10:55 at night. I put the crockpot on low at 8:00 when we sat down to eat dinner, and it is JUST NOW starting to look the way it was supposed to look after 3-4 hours. What a joke. It will be a long while before I'm laughing about this one with my guests. This killed the nice dinner I had planned.
