I'm new to cooking. Do I need to add water before I put tri tip in crockpot? I did BBQ chicken the other night on high for 3.5 hours and it was really dry.

Slow cookers are great but there is a learning curve. Generally, you don't need to add any additional liquid if you're wanting to roast something. I've cooked meatloaf in a slow cooker without any additional liquid. But usually, you need to add 1/2 to 1 cup of liquid, depending on what you're cooking. Usually with the long slow cook excess moisture accumulates anyway so you don't need to add a lot. I'm not sure why your chicken was dry as a slow cooker is a moist heat. Maybe you overcooked it? Remember, the average cooktimes are 4 to 5 hours on HIGH and 8 to 10 hours on LOW.
