Kitchen Tools For Roast Preparation: A good roast requires proper tools. Two items are essential: a fairly sturdy, shallow sided roasting pan and a digital meat thermometer. Useful but not essential is a good pair of tongs. All items are affordable and your investment will pay handsome returns.

Methods for Cooking the Perfect Holiday Roast: The formula for cooking meat is nearly foolproof: meat + heat + time = delicious. Tender cuts (steaks, chops, roasts) can tolerate higher heat for shorter periods; tougher cuts (briskets, chuck roasts, top of the rib) require lower heat, longer cooking times, and the addition of liquids.
