I do oil then salt. Not nessacerily Olive Oil, I use Veg oil then massage it in, getting right in the grooves.

Just salt. Don't get oil thing. It's greasy enough.

Thanks ShinyShoes, i've just put it in oven now

We got 3 extra bits of crackling thrown in with the joint, how should i cook that? Just in the roasting tin round the meat?
