I know a few years back I did some BBQing and it was always Low and Slow, so I was thinking that that would work for Chuck Roast, but this must be a whole new ballgame for me.

How low should one go when roasting a roast?
Should one season the meat over night or for 4 hours?
I ready like savory meat and food.

A chuck roast is best braised and not oven roasted. Its relatively tough and fatty so it's perfect for a long, slow moist cook.

It's my go to for pot roast.

Look up some pot roast recipes. Or cut up the roast and make a yummy stew.

If you oven roast I'd go a minimum of 250 degrees.

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

Donít look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.

There's no reason why he can't make a slow cooker dish with the flavors of beef stroganoff.

The trouble with eating Italian food is that five or six days later you're hungry again. ~ George Miller
