If not what would you suggest?). Would you sear the roast before putting it in the roaster or just basically follow the recipe listed with the exception of putting it in the dutch oven and covering with coals.
Thanks for any suggestions, this sounds (and looks) like a wonderful recipe to try out.
IMO 375* would be too hot...You want the meat to barely simmer (braise) in the pot....Not Boil. On top of the stove you can watch for a barely simmer...In the oven, your oven setting will be determinded by the type of pot/dutch oven etc. you are using....Maybe start in the 300* or less range, and go from there...Remember....just a slow simmer.
