Dutch Oven Pot Roast

I've used Grandpas Grub Dutch Oven pot roast recipe many times, it's always good . I add wine, he doesn't. It was first posted on this forum 4-08. My 4.5 lb chuck roast was done in 3.5 hours.

    I have no idea how to access recipes on this site. "Cookbook" looks promising, but gets me nothing. Anyone know?

    But, the OP said this was a @Grandpa's Grub recipe so that means it's on the old forum. As far as I know, GG has never been on here. Anyway, here's his Dutch Oven pot roast recipe...

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    It is the same recipe Carolina Q linked but it is on this forum(April 2008). I used a Flame boss to keep the temperature close to 300 deg F( it over shot by 15 deg for about an hour.) Besides adding a quarter of a cup of wine, for liquids I used chicken broth and beef stock, no water. I had to add more beef stock half way through. I also used baby carrots, they melted in your mouth and tasted like candy. I used canned potatoes because thats what I had, they tasted really good to. I added them for just the last hour, that was long enough to warm them up. Thank you for all your kind comments.

  • Awesome. Subbed for future reference.

    Fun and easy prep. No worry cook. Awesome result. I'll whip up some mashed potatoes with it. Great leftovers. Pair with a good Red of choice and you'll be napping before you know it.

  • Do you cook that in there with the lid off?
    Gittin' there...
  • I cook it with the lid of and with a plate setter. I forgot to mention that I also add some cherry chunks to the fire.

    1st off, thanks CarolinaQ for the email.  Finally got my PW problem fixed.  That pot roast looks fantastic.  Love to have some of those taders & onions.  My thoughts uaing a lid is like taking a shower with a rain coat on.  Save the lump & use the oven w/lid on.  W/lid on using flavor wood won't help.  Just my 2 cents.

    If looking for more smoke flavor at first cook at under 185° for 30 to 60 minutes & use the flavor wood then go back to the normal cook. The cook temps & time is just a guide.  With any cook always cook to temperature, once you do your cooks will be much better.

    That's a great looking roast.  Great color in your pic too.

    Any road will take you there if you don't know where you're going.
