How to Tie a Roast

How to Tie a Roast

So how many stores does Darrenkamp’s have? Darrenkamp’s has three! And they were founded when? They started in 1932! You and who else owns it? My two brothers, David and Joe. And you handle all of the meat department? I do! The rabbit comes around the tree, up through the forest, and down around the tree again. Then you snap it off, and just tie it off. The reason you tie is off is to keep it from undoing. The biggest advantage to tying a roast is to ensure even cooking throughout. Butcher twine keeps the cut of meat in a condensed form, and helps it hold its desired shape. The twine will not burn while it’s cooking, or spoil the taste of your meat. As you are tying the knots, make sure that each knot is spaced evenly spaced apart from one another. In order to get the best results, tie the entire roast before you cook the meat. This method of tying is perfect for pork, beef, veal, lamb, or any other kind of meat you’re looking to roast. I learned my knot from an old meat cutter out of Philadelphia, named Walter Middleton. The gentleman has passed away now. He was 72 years old when he taught me that. He was my mentor. He died of 82 and he cut meat until he was 79.

    The #24 Gauge Butcher Sausage Twine 2 lb. Spool is extremely durable and lightweight. In addition to sausage, I found the twine to be perfect got tying up a large roast.

    The twine is of just the right thickness for our restaurant business and at a great price. It wasn't easy to find online, but we're so very glad we did.

    This is fantastic butcher's twine. It's easy to work with and holds together extremely well. I have been using this product for years. I'm a professional meat cutter with 10 years experience. I've used other twines in the market, but I have never found a better one than this. I rarely breaks or frays and one spool lasts me a good while. I will continue to use this product for years to come.

    The 36 Ply Butcher Twine Spool is very heavy duty, and will not fray at the ends when cut as some spools do. Works very well for tying roasts, chickens, turkey, etc.

    This is a great quality thick butchers twine. Its a must have for every professional kitchen. I use it daily whether to truss chickens or to tie up a matambre.

    This is really heavy string with a great feel. First time I used it I was amazed at how much easier it was to work with than the lightweight string I got at the department store.

    from Mahogany Roasters Posted on

    The weight of this twine is perfect. I keep it on a wire shelf. I thread the string through the top of the spool and let it hang out the bottom. I pull from the bottom and never have to touch the spool. And a large deli cup will fit perfectly over the whole thing to keep dust off!

    Great quality twine, and a good amount, which equals great value! I've used this on pork and chicken, the pork I have a pic of and for the chicken, I used it to prevent drumsticks from falling off of a chicken leg cooking gadget. It definitely comes in handy and you can get it at a great price!

    I love this twine! I use it to tie all my plastic products instead of twist ties, and it holds the seal well. It also adds a great look to the bakery products I use, and it has never unraveled on me.
