Guide to Roasting

ROASTED WHOLE CHICKEN

Preheat Oven: 450°

Prep: Rub chicken with a salt and herb mixture, like thyme and parsley. Truss your bird (our chickens come pre-trussed). Place in a roasting pan or skillet.

Cook: 50-60 minutes, 175° internal temperature


ROASTED PORK SHOULDER

Preheat Oven: 325°

Prep: Rub pork shoulder with equal parts kosher salt and brown sugar. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight or day of. Before cooking, unwrap and season with pepper. Place in a roasting rack in a roasting pan with 1 quart of water. 

Cook: about 2 hours, 190° internal temperature


ROASTED PICANHA

PREHEAT OVEN: 400°

Prep: Score the fatty blanket of the meat with a knife and pack in kosher salt. Sear the beef in a pan with hot oil until browned on both sides (2 min/side). 

Cook: 35 minutes, 130° internal temperature


Roasting: the perfect "set it and forget it" cooking method that makes the whole house smell fantastic.

A key to a good roast is the rub (herbs, sugar, salt) to form a crust that infuses the meat as it cooks. For the perfect one pan meal, throw some veggies on the side of your roast and let them cook in the juices.
