I have been deboning and opening shoulders for porchetta. Salt and season let the salt work for twenty four hours or so. Perforate the skin with a Jakartta or paring knife rub skin with vinegar and salt, fill tie off , I bake four hours or so at 450. This has been producing a good crispy skin. Same prep low and slow than high heat good also. Thinking about some steam first than moderate oven than high. Any tips? Thanks

Yes, use bellies with the loins attached. Instead of shoulder.

Yes,, the loin belly or tenderloin belly are the usual cuts used here. I am trying to get the shoulder to be as good a porchetta as I can. Thanks

I use belly, brine it for 5 days, roll it, tie it and roast it, then you get that porcheta shape. Absolutely delicious, had nothing but compliments for it,mmmmmmm quite fancy a bit now
