1. To calculate the roasting time for a large cut of meat allow 20 minutes for each 500 g plus an extra 20 minutes (this will give you a medium cooked roast).

2. Use the same calculation when roasting meat over coals.

3. Roast whole cuts in a kettle braai. Alternatively

4. cover the meat with a double layer of aluminium foil while it’s roasting.
