this may sound a very silly question, do I have to take all the fat of as the recipe says which would mean destringing then trying to restring which seems a bit of a faf or can I cook it and when cold skim all the fat of?? how do you do yours?? confused

I attempted the pulled pork recipe and I took the string off the pork. Even doing that, I found it so difficult to cut all the fat off that I ended up leaving most of it on!
Didn't turn out so bad as the smell when it was ready put me off completely (turns out I really don't like pulled pork!). It got hubbys seal of approval though- although he did have to add bbq sauce out of a jar to give it more flavour.

Also, I don't know how skimming the fat off when it's cooked will work as when it's cooked it starts to all break up and the fat isn't visible. I was able to remove the thick rind of fat no problem, but the joint of meat I had was quite fatty underneath that- not sure if there's a leaner cut I could have had instead.
