      Variation:

      Grilled Roast Pork with Rosemary and Garlic:
      Select a boneless double top loin roast, a boneless center loin roast, or a boneless sirloin roast: Prepare charcoal or gas grill for indirect cooking, firing briquettes or lighting the gas on the sides of the grid only. Set a drip pan in the center of the lower grid. Add 1 cup of hot water to the drip pan. Place the roast on the center of the cooking rack over drip pan. Cover and cook for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until instant-read thermometer registers 155°F when inserted into center. Remove from grill and let stand for 10 minutes or until temperature rises to 160°F. Remove drip pan and skim off any fat. Add 1/2 cup of hot water, scraping up any browned bits. Pour into glass measuring cup; microwave for 1 minute.
