Remove foil and spoon stuffing loosely into the crown. During second stage of roasting, it will absorb flavor from the pork. Add any stuffing that doesn't fit inside the roast to a lightly greased 2-quart baking dish and cover with aluminum foil.
Insert an instant-read meat thermometer in several places in the pork, avoiding fat and bone. Be sure that the pork has reached an internal temperature of 145 degrees and stuffing has reached 165 degrees.
