Default What temp is a slow cooker?

If I wanted to slow cook a lot at one time & do it in bakers in the oven (I have stoneware bakers that would cook like a slow cooker), what temp would I use? I realize it's more efficient to use the crockpot, but mine is small. I thought it would be cool to do several things at once one day. Would you put it on 250? Anyone know?

Okay, since no one answered, I looked it up online! It says the crock pot temp is usually between 180 & 270. They also said not to cook a whole chicken in the crockpot b/c with the size, there is a time period when it would be the right temp for salmonella (I think that's the one). I still haven't read about slow cooking in an oven. I suppose I can look that up, too!

I believe 180 degrees is the temp that food bacteria dies.

I would cook on 250 degrees in the oven. 250 is the temperature that we use when we slow cook meats in our smoker. I only use the oven at 200 when I'm keeping something warm.

The great advantage to baking in your stoneware is the even temps, and if you're covering what every your cooking with a stone it cooks more evenly. Think outside the box for covers. A flat stone can cover the baking bowl or the rectangle baker/lid just as easily to free up more stones for an all day slowcook-a-thon. Let us know how it turns out.

That's interesting! I've heard a lot of people cook whole chickens in the crockpot. I've only done it once and wasn't pleased with the results. My crockpot seems to cook faster than most. The food is always done WAY before the recipe recommends, even on Low.
