The classic French/Alsatian version of the recipe does call for some
pork or goose fat, or butter, so using a pan of sauerkraut as a drip
pan, if one were roasting in front of a fireplace, might not be a bad
deal. Not sure if I like the idea of roasting sauerkraut in the oven
for any period of time. I mean, you can, but you sort of want to set
it up for baking at an appropriate temperature, etc.
And, of course, there's always roasting "til yt be half enow", and
then placing it in with the kraut to finish cooking.
I did mine in one of those cast-iron Dutch ovens with the "self-
basting" lid, in the oven.
