    Derf's Note:

    We have cooked both types of roast, both on the bbq grill and in the oven, either way they are delicious, lots of taste, if you prefer rare, remove earlier. The veggies are wonderful and it is great to have a whole meal in one carefree operation. Marinating time up to 24 hours.
