Recipe by Irmgard

This was our first time doing a roast on the barbecue and we're hooked! The meat comes out perfectly cooked and so juicy! The original recipe calls for 2 teaspoons of curry powder in the coating, but I left that out as it would have overpowered the side dishes. Feel free to use it if you like!
