3kg joint, boiled for 5 mins then discard salty water then cooked it in coke for about 7-8 hours in the slow cooker on low then basted with glaze for 20 mins in medium oven.

I thought meat cooked on low is supposed to get nicer if done for longer..

It was really tasty but quite tough - any tips??

Was it fully submerged in the cola? I've done this before and there was quite a firm chunk on the part that was sticking up out of the liquid but all the submerged bits were lovely and they were in for nearly 9 hours while I was at work

Yes it was all in the coke - it's a mystery!!

Mine is a bit dry if overcooked. Was yours?
I only give mine 5 hours.

Yes it was dry / tough but it was massive for a start so I thought it would need quite a long time

Perhaps I'll do it for less time and see if that helps
