Baked Potatoes...who knew?

My friend sent me a link to baked potatoes in the crock.  I thought that was neat but why would I ever do that when I could just stick them in the oven?  I came across the answer to that question last week on Captain's birthday.  Now, he is a steak and potato type of guy and for his birthday (which was on a work day) he wanted baked potatoes.  I was trying to figure out how I could do this when I was working and would not be home until 30 minutes before dinner.  Of course I could have microwaved the potatoes but they NEVER taste good that way.  I remembered this and it turned out wonderful!  The potatoes were evenly cooked and moist.  Perfecto!

wash potatoes, poke a few fork holes in potato, wrap in foil, put in crock on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.
