    I cooked a chuck roast on the Lopi while watching the Lions game Sunday

    Turned out great. (and the Lions even won)

    took about 3 hrs with the bottom of pot during cook 290 degrees, top of pot about 220.

    Therm on stove read about 250 to 300 degrees throughout.

    Looks good! Last week I simmered a pot of chilli all day on the F600. Looking forward to trying more stuff this winter.

    Tom, as it get colder outside the cooking will become more regular. My wife usually has something cooking on the stove during winter months and the stove top will be much higher temperature then so it works out even better.

    Cool! How do you know the temp of the pot bottom? And did you have it on a trivet? Did you have a meat thermo in there too? I'd love to try this!

    I used my Cen-Tech infrared therm to chk the external pot temp. Set the DO directly on top of stove.

    I was just curious about the pot temps vs the therm on my stove pipe so I could just reference the stove pipe for future cooks. Stove pipe was 250 to 300 for whole cook.

    The Dutch oven I used is a LeCreuset. (top obviously stayed on for whole cook, except for pic)

    After about 2.5 hrs I did check the meat temp with a therm. It was about 190 so I just kept it on till it reached

    210 degrees internal.

    Pretty easy and saved some electricity :)

    saved some electric and was a lot more fun as well! And you know how to do it if the power goes out. Here in KY a few years back, we had a bad ice storm. My daughter was without power for 2 weeks. Part of the motivation to buy the Avalon Olympic (made by same company as Lopi) since it has the nice flat top to cook on.

    Do you keep a pot of water on the stove all the time? Would you use a trivet with it?

    Gee thanks, now I am hungry. ;-) LOL

    Wish we could go that route but the family wants a flush insert. Grrrrrr.

    Ann from KY,

    Yes, the other black pot in the pic on the stove is my water, no trivet.
