We were looking forward to some moist tasty pork, but this was SO disappointing - no flavour, chewy, and with a strange antiseptic smell which pervaded the oven. Followed the instructions properly, but really not tempted to try the "crackling" (just a massive layer of fat)
You get what you pay for with this joint
I decided to make this a more traditional Christmas with a mix of roast meats over the says. This was patently a more expensive joint. But it proved worth the extra. The quality of the joint was apparent from the moment it was unpacked: unblemished, white fat; even flesh; tight and neat string. The smell while cooking attracted praise - even from my vegetarian wife. And the result - cooked according to the instructions on the pack - was perfect: crisp but not tooth-breaking crackling; and flesh that was clearly cooked but still moist.
Great pork joint
Great quality joint. Good value too.

Crispy Crackling, Juicy Joint.
The crackling was really crispy and the pork joint was very tender and moist following the label instructions.
Nice pork, crackling not so good
The pork is lovely but it's hard to get a good crackling because if you leave it in long enough to do so the meat is dry and overcooked. I suggest cutting the crackling off and cooking it for longer on it's own while the meat is resting.

So disappointed! It was dry, lacking in flavour and chewy. Why.? I followed the instructions carefully.
Meat was ok - but was very put off by the amount of hairs on the skin. No chance of eating the cracklings which should have been the best bit!
