Ping - Large Marge - Italian Beef Help

Thanks so much for the post and the link to Gonnella's Italian Beef recipe. I can't wait to try the receipe but being a less than experienced cook I have a question that I hope you can answer. During the cooking process, is it necessary or advisable to place the roast in a v rack while it is in the roasting pan or would the rack simply prevent the formation of all those little brown bits in the bottom of the roaster that will eventually give up their flavor to the "gravy"?

Thanks in advance, Mike

    i did not use a v-rack. but i made sure to put a drip pan underneath to catch all the "Goodies" so i could put it in my gravey. maybe this pic will help you

    Bente's setup looks great. Indirect with drip pan is all you need, or try a roasting pan with rack. Once its done, throw a few Italian sausages on the grill and make yourself a "combo" sandwich...ABT lovers would go nuts over this! Can't say it will help the waistline though.

    Bobby G's in Alpharetta. Click on this green link.

    It's on Morris road, off of Windward Pky and GA-400. I think there are two franchises now, one in Roswell and one further north.
