Hi I have a potroast.What would it be like if I wrapped it in tinfoil & cooked it on the gas barbaque for a few hours?The price of a roast nowadays allows no room for errors.I have never tryed this before.
I have people coming tonite and I would like to impress them with my skills.Lol!!
Everythin else goes on the barbaque but never a roast.How come??
My classic 1949 Moffat electric range has lost the top element in the oven and the bottom element is only half on nowadays for some reson & its already near lunch time.

Sure you can barbeque a roast. Doesn't matter much what you use for heat - with enough of it you can cook with almost anything from the sun to car engines to hot rocks to a pit of fire. Things start drying up at 212f and fat melts around 350f and generally, the tougher the meat, the slower you cook it. aussie gals like pork roasts with the skin and fat on, use a hot oven and when the cracklins are done, the meat's perfect, they cut thru the skin a few places first, pile a few parsnips alongside for the last hour and serve with applesauce and oh boy - Indian gals flavor chicken (satay they call it) with a hint of peanut butter - that's great too - darn near as good as monkey with mung beans - now i AM hungry :)

the top element is for broiling . if only half of the bottom element is working i guess you will have a half baked lunch .
