I tried this - followed recipe exactly - and after nearly 9 hours on low my jacket potatoes were still completely raw - I reverted to the original plan of microwaving them & finishing them off in the oven but they were ruined - they had a really awful smoked flavour after so many hours in the slow cooker & had to be binned. I wouldn’t recommend it!
