    And onion gravy, don't forget this for onion gravy.

    I agree with Spinaker that it really helps flavor the meat. In my experience however, everything is going to get melted down and almost to the point to be burnt so it doesn’t make for a very good presentation. I prefer to do it in a pan on the side like you talk about that way you control the degree in which the mushrooms and onions are cooked. Give it a try with a little bit on the side and see what you think.

    You can certainly do this and it is amazing. Since you are not braising in the true sense, with the meat sitting in the rue, and taking the meat all the way to 202 or so, you might not have enough time in the cook to melt those onions all the way down. Just keep in mind, those onions will cook down completely and disappear in the pot given enough time. I do this weekly for my dutch oven cooks, outside. It imparts an amazing flavor in the meat and the rue, but those onions are no where to be found in the pot. Which is totally fine. and maaaaan is it good.

    I would not worry about too much fat. That is not really possible for holiday meals.

    Mushrooms and onions under the rib roast?

    I’m just thinking. I usually braise them in butter and serve them on the side. But I don’t think there’s any reason I couldn’t put them in the pan under the roast, either. Except maybe too much fat from the drippings? But I was braising them in butter, so that should be a wash, no?

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
