For any stock over 5 feet long, I make sure to use an outfeed roller. I usually layout the parts on my stock, and cut the parts to rough length before jointing. A dining table is one notable exception, where you need boards 6-7 feet long. Even then, the boards on extension tables run widthwise and are usually no longer than 4 feet.
For the few times when I have to leave the stock long, I set an outfeed roller level with the outfeed table of my jointer using a builders level.
