Where do you find a leg of pork with skin on.
Observation: 10 minutes at 350 will not create crackling ?
You can pick it up at most butcher shops. With the rest of the cooking time it will get crackly on top.
When we turn heat down to moderate, how hot should it be, 300 degrees?
Yes thats correct 350 degrees F or around 150 degrees Celsius
