Roasting at lower temperatures (slow roasting) results in less moisture loss. This means the end result is succulent and moist and usually feeds more. Well worth it if you have the time.

Leftover meats should be cooled and refrigerated within 2 hours of cooking. Then they can be safely enjoyed in sandwiches or rolls the next day.
