  • What does the Egg add to a roast in a dutch oven that a traditional oven doesn't provide? Forgive me if this appears to be a stupid question, but it appears baking (pizza excluded) on the egg isn't much different then a traditional method. Just thought I'd ask.

    Its the fun of cooking outside in the fresh air that the oven doesn't provide!

    I have also heard that when you sear the meat before braising in the Dutch oven it will impart a grilled flavor. I have also heard that if you add some cherry or apple wood it will take on a slight smokey flavor. I need to try it to find out!!!

    lid off, you'll get smoke.

    lid on, at the very least you'll have more stable temps than an electric oven can provide.  not sure that'sa big deal for a D.O. cook.  for me, it's the smoke

    So you go ahead and leave the lid off the entire time you cook or just part of it?  Think I will try tommorow night

  • Created a pot roast at some friends WI lake home this weekend - they are new eggers. They decided to leverage the egg's ability to hold the temperature for about 5 hours and left the top on the dutch oven.  While the pot roast was unbelieveablly good, i would have probably gone without the lid at least for a period of time for some charcol flavor - that's also why I have the egg - again the meal was awesome.  Here's a couple of pics.

  • so any traditional recipe will do? Such as bottom round, beef broth, water salt pepper, onions, carrots, potatoes, and finish with burgundy wine?

  • I did cook it and it turned out great! I added beef stew seasoning which made it very yummy. Frankly the only issue is I seasoned the veg with rock salt and then as afterthought added the stew seasoning Tad salty. Have become sensitive to salt so I detected it but wife did not. I am going to do this more often but with different cuts of meat, pork and fowl.

    One thing that was nice is that I sliced the beef roast and put it back in the liquor. Really tender!
