1.    Soak the Chips the morning you plan on cooking the roast.

Of course, cooking anything on the grill requires a "Sammy", or 12, to help enjoy the day!

2.    Prepare the roast, by first oiling it, then rubbing the spices all over. Don't be afraid that you may think that you're using too much of anything, because most of it will cook off. Add more oil after the meat is coated too make sure that it has a real oily surface.

3.    Heat the grill, then turn off all the burners, but one on one side, and leave that one on high. Place the chips, in a box over the one burner that's on, then place the roast on the other side of the grill. Close the lid and let it start smoking.

4.    Cook for about 1 hour for a 6" diameter roast. and 1 1/2 hours for an 89" diameter roast at an approximate grill temperature of 300 degrees. check to the temperature of the roast, and cook until an instant read meat thermometer reads 110 - 115 for rare, or 120 - 125 for medium. don't ruin a great piece of meat by cooking this well done, it'll become real tough.

5.    Take it off the grill, place on a platter, and cover with aluminum foil. Let the roast "rest" this way for at least 15 minutes, but as long as 45 minutes if you need the extra time to prepare your side dishes.
