Charcoal vs using the oven

g48dd | Jun 15, 201703:01 PM     2

Its summer turning the oven on means pushing the AC, which consumes electricity. Let's say I want to do a roast at 325 for 3 hrs here it cost 0.12 cents per kilowatt.... but the oven really drives up house heat, so you must also factor in cost of increased A/C lol..... I realize its ridiculous, I like the idea of making a roast in a dutch oven like Kent Rollins do you think its cheaper or more expensive to use the charcoal over a dutch oven or just turn on the stove and crank up the A/C?
