Fair enough. I don't swear by fat side up or down. Honestly I just checked my stock recipe.Here we go. Some folks swear by fat side down to protect the butt from heat. Some folks swear by fat side up so the fat renders and moistens the butt. I've made them both ways and I think the only correct side to do it is inside the egg.
+1 on no trim. Fat side down.
