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.

Learn the proper way to tie a roast with butcher twine to not only help your roast hold its shape, but to ensure even cooking throughout. The great thing about using butcher twine is that it won't burn in the oven or ruin the taste of your meat!


This high quality, heavy weight professional sausage twine is made of a strong poly/cotton, #24 gauge fiber, perfect for a variety of kitchen tasks. Use it to tie back and truss chicken and turkey legs when roasting, which helps the meat to cook evenly and stay in place, tie bundles of herbs, hang meat to dry, tie up roasts, or keep pork, beef, fish and other meats fresh with butcher paper. The small ball easily fits the tight spaces of a kitchen but is still 390 feet long!

Sold in a 1/2 lb. ball.

    For some reason this stuff is hard to find in stores, at least where I live. This is great to have on hand when making roulades or roasted chicken. I even like it to make a rustic bow on gifts, especially food gifts.

    1 ball, infinite uses. Great for roasts, creating bouquet garnis, but also other non-food uses like candle-making. This is a perfect size for my large homemade candles.

    Used this twine for many applications- food and non food related. It is very strong and can stand high oven temperatures. Also cant beat the price

    I absolutely love this butcher twine. I use it all the time in the kitchen and you can't beat the price. It works great for tieing herbs together for a pot of soup or for tieing a roast.

    Handy for lots of things. Of course for tying meat up before roasting. But such a lovely rustic white color that I use it for packaging treats and gifts especially with brown kraft paper items.

    This butcher twine is thicker and stronger than what I get from the local butcher. It is 12 strand and holds up perfectly even in a 425 degree hot oven. I wish I would have bought another ball or two!
