I make this recipe in a four-quart crockpot that I was gifted (thanks little bro). You could make this recipe in a four, five or six-quart crockpot but see my notes in the article.
If this is the first time you've made this recipe, I recommend checking your meat at four hours regardless of the temperature as sometimes crockpot temperatures can vary which can cause some to cook faster than others. Here are some great slow cooker tips if you think your slow cooker may not be cooking correctly. You can also test your slow cooker first if you think it may run too hot.
Remember pork loin (different from pork tenderloin, see above for more info) is a large piece of meat that is best cooked low and slow. This helps to render the fat in the meat so it becomes tender. Not cooking the meat long enough can sometimes produce meat that "seems dry" but it actually just that the meat itself hasn't cooked long enough to become tender. This means just because your meat hits the safe temperature, doesn't necessarily mean it is finished cooking to become tender. Unfortunately, I can not account for every single person's individual slow cooker and weight of meat to tell you exactly when your meat will be done. Using these tips consistently produces a delicious pork loin for most slow cookers.
