  3. Place dripping pan with 1/2-inch to 1-inch water under BBQ grill. Preheat barbecue to medium-high (400 degrees F/200 degrees C). Cook with rotisserie or by indirect heat.
    • Rotisserie Roasting: Insert spit rod lengthwise through center of roast; secure with holding forks and position roast over drip pan.
    • Indirect Heat Roasting on BBQ: Place roast on grill over drip pan that has been moved to one side of the BBQ; turn heat off under just the roast side of the BBQ.
  4. Cook in closed BBQ at a constant heat until desired doneness (approx. 20-25 minutes per pound of roast for medium doneness).
  5. Remove roast to cutting board; tent with foil for 10 to 15 minutes. Carve into thin slices against the grain of the meat.
