Just had a quick question I was unsure about. Do you think it would be okay to use a slow cooker to make some pulled pork or beef for BBQ sandwiches? My pork recipe calls for cooking on high 6-8 hours, and my beef recipe calls for cooking on low for 6-8 hours. Not sure how much free glutamate would be created.
I also have a chicken adobo recipe which calls for cooking on low for 4-5 hours. Would this be okay too?

I've used my slow cooker to cook a whole chicken several times over the last few weeks. It comes in very handy when it's hot and I don't want to turn on the oven. I haven't personally had any issues with it.
However, for the most part, I think I'm most sensitive to the man made glutamates vs the ones that occur naturally. I'm also sensitive to sulfites.

Some of the people on this forum avoid using slow cookers. I however cook with a crock pot from time to time and don't seem to have any adverse reaction to it. I would probably be more concerned with the barbecue sauce! Are you making it from scratch? Deb has a recipe in her cookbook. I've tried it, and I like to add extra black pepper for flavor. It's too bad there's no commercially available BBQ sauce without MSG in it.
