  1. How much oil is needed?

  2. due to the fact that the herbs get put under the skin for roasting ! leave it on lol

  3. what’s the temp in both fahrenheit and celsius?

  4. Can you do this a day or two in advance and then reheat it? If so, how long and at what temp would you reheat it per kg? Many thanks
