How to Get Perfect Crackling When Spit Roasting Pork

Here are some tips on how to get perfect crackling. Generally, it's a two day process, it takes time to achieve perfect crackling.

The first thing you need to do is score the pork belly  by pin-pricking the skin. After that, rub the meat with salt and leave it in the fridge overnight for all that moisture to come to the surface. 

Now before you put it on the spit, make sure you wipe it down with a paper towel to wipe off any excess moisture then add more salt. 

I tend to apply high heat right from the start by dropping the meat really low and keeping it close to the coals.
