Untie roast, open and pound lightly to even thickness.
Cook celery and shallots (or onion) in butter until tender. Combine with ground pork, parsley, brandy and seasonings. Spread over roast. Lay a row of chestnuts down the center of stuffing. Chop remaining chestnuts finely and set aside. Roll meat around chestnuts and tie firmly. Roast in a 350 degree F. oven 1 1/2 hours or until meat thermometer reads 155-160 degrees F. Remove roast and let rest 10-15 minutes before carving.
