I usually take the skin off when the meat comes out of the oven, salt  
it heavily on both sides and give it 5-10 mins at an insane heat,  
while the meat is resting.   Plus, if you want to do really swish^W  
pretentious things, like cut it into portion-sized squares, it's  
easier to do when it's half-done.


There's stuff above here
