Is it in small little pieces? How long are you cooking it? Just check it before you eat it to see if the meat is done.

In my crockpot cookbook it says to not add raw hamburger because the crockpot doesn't heat up fast enough to keep bacteria from forming. They suggest to cook hamburger and chicken first.

I wouldn't eat it only because I wouldn't be able to handle all the grease it will have once the burger is done cooking. I always rinse it with super hot water.

I don't rinse it but I agree with the rest of this post. There would be more excess grease than I prefer in it.

I was wondering if that was the case. Idk how hot they get temperature wise.

I cook the hamburger first, drain the grease, then put it in the crackpot with the rest of the chili ingredients.

It is in small pieces, it's been in there since noon, it's 4:30 now and was going to leave it until 7 ish. So 7 hours should be good right?

Oh no it's already been 4 hours and was going to wait another 3ish. Not too excited about the grease but if it's still edible then what the hell lol. I'll dab it up with paper towels a little bit before I eat it haha.

I have it on low and it got hot pretty quickly, maybe 10 minutes and it was hot to the touch.

I would throw the meat (I'm assuming hamburger) in a frying pan with some chili powder, cook it and then add it in.

o it'll be fine then! I now make my chili on the stovetop cause its faster..but my dad makes amazing chili and ALWAYS puts the raw meat in, thats the only way i've ever read a recipe for it as well.
