A question about a recipe: Roasted Pork Belly


Are dried herbs best for the rub? How deep should the skin piercings be?

First and foremost the recipe says the piercing can't be too deep. Especially with a piece of meat as fatty as pork belly. Ideally the herbs are fresh, but if dried are what you have then go for it. I would say to increase the amount of herbs if you are using dried though. Probably by half. Skewers for making the piercings? What's wrong with a fork? Less waste involved. Unless of course you've got metal skewers

For piercing meats to be roasted I use the point of a small (4") kitchen knife. I use that for "larding" roasts with garlic slivers too.
