  • Preheat barbecue for indirect heat by heating one side of the barbecue to medium heat and leaving burners on other side of barbecue turned off. Combine chili powder, garlic salt and 1 tsp. of the pepper; rub evenly onto all sides of meat. Place on cool side of barbecue; cover with lid.
  • Grill meat, without turning, 1 hour. When internal temperature of meat reaches 140ºF, brush meat with 1/4 cup of the barbecue sauce. Continue grilling, covered, 10 min. or until internal temperature of meat reaches 150ºF. Transfer meat to carving board. Tent with foil. Let stand 10 min. or until internal temperature of meat rises to 160ºF. Meanwhile, mix coleslaw blend, Miracle Whip and remaining 1/2 tsp. pepper.
  • Cut meat across the grain into thin slices. Add to remaining 1/2 cup barbecue sauce in large bowl; toss to coat. Spoon into rolls. Serve with the coleslaw.

Special Extra

Place roll halves, cut-sides down, around outside edge of barbecue. Grill 2 min. or until lightly toasted before filling as directed.

How to To Grill Roast Over Direct Heat

Preheat barbecue to medium heat. Grill meat, covered, 40 min. or until internal temperature of meat registers 140ºF, turning every 10 min. Remove 1/2 cup of the barbecue sauce; place in large bowl. Brush 2 Tbsp. of the remaining sauce onto meat. Grill, covered, an additional 5 min. Turn meat over; brush with remaining 2 Tbsp. sauce. Grill, covered, an additional 5 to 10 min. or until internal temperature of meat registers 150ºF. Transfer meat to carving board. Tent with foil. Continue as directed.


Instead of serving the coleslaw as a side dish, spoon over the meat filling before covering sandwiches with tops of rolls.

    love, love, loved it.

    I would probably make this again but I would flip the roast over half way thru because the top was rare and the bottom was well done...Other than that it was tasty!

    This is by far the best way to barbecue a roast. Much better than wrapping it in foil as the meat develops a rich glaze from the barbecue sauce. Will make this again and again as it is a quick and easy way to feed a crowd.
