  • Re: pot roast

    If you cover it, you might as well cook it in the oven, as you will get none of the benefits of the added smokiness. 

    I asked a question recently about using a stainless steel pot (since I don't own a dutch oven), and was given enough encouragement that I'm gonna try it.  However, I plan on putting spacers between the pot & the plate setter - however, I think that the cast iron that the dutch oven is made out of is strong enough to handle the heat & can be placed directly on the plate setter (though, if it was me, I'd still use spacers cuz it might help the ingredients at the bottom from getting scorched) - though, that's just my thoughts...

    BTW, care to present details about the recipe - I've been wanting to try pot roast in the Egg (my GF has done it in the crock pot b4, but we've never done it in the Egg) - make sure to take lotsa pics!!

    Good luck!!

    EDIT:  just re-read & saw that your DO has legs - you should be good w/out the spacers!!
