Quick question: Do I take off the netting before or after roasting?
(Obviously I'm not really into cooking!)
Thanks

Not much to add to Ike's answer here, but as a bit of explanation, the net holds it together while it's cooking. If you take it off before you cook it, it will fall apart.

If you're doing something pulled or shredded then it doesn't matter, though.

And if if falls apart, it will cook faster than you expected it to, and you'll end up with a dry piece of meat at best, a burned and shriveled cinder at worst.

I'm going to be roasting a netted pork shoulder later today -- I'm leaving the net on and cooking it in the oven for several hours at 225 degrees, then finishing it on a smoky grill for the last hour. For pulled-pork barbecue.

Doing it on the grill for the whole period would be a better method, but ovening it for most of the cooking time makes for less fussing with coals and hickory chunks. The meat takes on a lot of smoke flavor in that one hour.

MMMMM... Sounds great Ike! Unfortunately I have to use oven only. I'm cooking it at 325 until 160 degree internal temperature is reached. Would cooking it at a lower temp. longer make much difference?
Thanks to the rest of you for your help.

PS check out the cat urine ad below. I wonder if....... NAH! ;)

Nuthin' wrong with a nice piece of oven-roasted pork, my friend. If I may be so bold, let me recommend putting the roast into a 450 degree over for the first 10-15 minutes, then turning it down to 300 for the duration. The initial zap gives you a good crusty exterior.

Also, the roast will be done when it reaches an internal temp of 150. Going to 160 may dry things out.

Thanks again Ukulele Ike for the info. I've cooked it already to 160 with net and it could be a little less done. I assume the 450 degree oven is preheated to this temp. first?

Pull the netting away from the meat all over before you cook it. Or season it, for that matter. It's easier to pull the netting away from raw meat than it is to pull it out of cooked meat.
