Haha - I think I was just wondering if I could cook things longer than 8 hours or find a way to extend the cooking times... I may just have to get a programable crock pot when I start working 12 hours (making my time away from home, 14 hours with commuting).
Some slow cookers (and ovens) come with a timer to turn on when you want it to start. There are also external start timers. Mostly I start mine when I come home and have it cooked for reheating next day.
A lot depends on what you're cooking. Beans, for instance, can cook darned near forever. I'd say experiment to see what works for you. The size and type of product will have a lot to do with it (a pot roast vs. chicken, for instance).

"Every day above ground is a good day." (Chef Justin Kennedy of New Orleans, on Chopped)
Can anyone explain if it's possible or ok to add time to the cooking time of a recipe?
For example, some recipes are like cook for 6 hours, 8 hours, 9 hours... some days though I'm gone for 15 hours, 16 hours... Some weeks/months the only time it can cook for 6-9 hours with me able to shut it off after that is possibly evening to morning...
