Brilliant joint when properly cooked!
A great roast! Did it in half a bottle of wine, slow-cooked 3 hours (20 mins per pound) at 160 degrees C, with a few whole cloves of garlic scattered in the wine. The wine cooked off slowly, leaving the meat full of flavour and tender, and left to roast in the fats/juices. Didn't have to do anything to the pre-scored crackling; when done the crackling was perfectly cooked. Removed it from the joint while it rested, carved separately - perfection. (Do not cover during the cooking process! Only when it's resting.) Pour the remaining wine juices into the gravy - awesome!
Reasonable if on offer, not well butchered though
Reasonable joint if cooked for a good length of time. But you do have to further 'score' the rind a bit more as not well butchered - the butchers twine/string to hold the joint together may as well not be there as it is too loose and irregular so serves no purpose. But a reasonable buy when on offer. I use a Jamie Oliver's Slow Roast Pork Shoulder - recipe which I recommend for this joint.

Really disappointed, this used to be great, but the last two have been very tough after eight hours in the slow cooker!
A quality product
Wonderful roasted with all the trimmings. Quality product and really tasty. A real treat for my grandsons.
Really good when cooked slow at 130 degrees Celsiu
Really good when cooked slow at 130 degrees Celsius fan assisted oven, in a casserole bowl (covered), with 2.5 full cups of vinegar of your choice. Throw in some half cut onions, peppers, carrots (Big chunks) e.t.c. and the flavours will be wild! Smother it with spices as a rub before putting in casserole bowl. After 8 hours, the flesh will fall apart wonderfully when ready.
