The trick will be to find a piece of pork without added water and with
adequate fat. See if you can locate a real butcher who may have some
non-factory meat. Get a decent sized piece because small ones can dry out.
Make sure it has a nice layer of fat surrounding it, if it is available even
ask for skin to remain on it because that makes crackling, and that it is on
the bone. If you got skin, score it with a very sharp knife. Rub some dry
spices all over it and then roast slowly, at a low temperature, as low as
275°F, just until a thermometer shows the internal temp at 160 then remove
it from the oven and let it sit for 15 minutes.
What spices? Up to you, but I like rosemary, black pepper and salt or thyme
to replace the rosemary.
