Hi. Perfect Pork?

hi to everyone,
my first time on here and i require some advice if that is ok.
every time i cook pork i can never get any decent crackling much to my families dismay, it either goes soggy or burns, i have tried all different ways of doing it and as yet none has been successful.
if any one could help me to get perfect crackling i would be forever grateful.

Welcome to DC tintin. I'm sure someone here will be able to help you. I have never made crackling and will be interesting to see how it is made.

I assume you're looking for a crackling crust on a roast??

There are a couple of things you can do. Could you tell us what cut of meat you are using and what you do?

welcome! You might try posting this on one of the topic forums if you don't get an answer right away :) Good luck! I've always wondered about crackling myself. There was some short story we were assigned in 10th grade that mentioned "Crackling Day" (Wednesday)....my teacher had to explain what crackling was!

Well, have fun on the forums!
