I believe that the dwarves should be roasted. This will allow the meat to become delightfully tender, and can have health benefits. PurpleDuck believes otherwise. First round is acceptance.

Roasting the dwarves would allow for a softer meat, and the fat from the meat would fall into the fire, creating a hotter blaze and a more thorough heating. Adding things such as pine wood or Bilbo to the fire could also help add flavor through the flame. Though this could take longer, it would have previously mentioned health benefits and flavor. Mincing the meat would be most effective tossed with other things, but taking the time to search for these things would draw us closer to the rise of the sun, making us prone to petrification.

Con

Roasting can be rather problematic, as although most of the time our troll brethern seems to prefer roasting their food whole, this decision almost always results in the food escaping and slaughtering every troll in sight. To avoid such a thing from a occurring, we can chop up the dwarves into bits and pieces, which would most certainly ensure that they are actually dead and not secretly planning their daring escape. Moreover, a good roast is always a slow roast, and a slow roast takes a lot of time, which will take us very close to daylight, something we cannot risk. If we mince the dwarves, the meat will cook much faster, and even if we should run late and petrify during the day, the meat will still be there because the dwarves will have no possibility of being alive. Dwarves are also known far and wide for their habituous drinking, and there result of this is high amounts of carbon dioxide inside the stoumach. If we should roast the dwarf whole, the gas will not be able to escape and the dwarf will eventually explode, which means no meat and a huge mess that will attract deadly scavengers and possibly other trolls that may come to steal our gold.

We could use the method of ground roasting. Placing the food in hot coals in a hole in the ground, slowly cooking it during the day, allowing us to eat them the next night. To meet a common ground, we could eat a few minced today, and roast the others to have tomorrow. This will allow us to have both, and can dress them with spices and broth accordingly.

Con

One of the most important rules of living out in the wild is to never leave food where someone else, or something else can find it. Leaving out food during the day not only releases a variety of alluring smells but also leaves the meat vulnerable to scavengers. Moreover, this kind of cooking is difficult to control, as we would not be able to adjust heat or stop cooking or anything simply because we are stuck inside the cave. As said before, roasting the dwarves will take far too long, and is a luxury we cannot afford. Perhaps in the future will be join the ranks of darkness and embrace the eternal night once again, but as for now, mincing the dwarves first is really our safest bet.
