Preparation method

Prep: 5 mins       | Cook: 12 hours

  1. Heat grill to Low.
  2. Combine rosemary, sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, salt, cayenne, and black pepper in a bowl and mix well.
  3. Prepare meat by washing, drying and evenly coating in Dijon mustard. Rub meat evenly with the spices, covering every inch with rub.
  4. Grill or smoke low and slow until desired doneness. I made pulled pork with this recipe, so I smoked it over hickory at 250 degrees F for 11 hours until the internal temperature was 205 F. Let it rest wrapped in foil and a towel in a cooler for 1 hour then pulled. Great by itself or slow cooked in BBQ sauce.

Alternate method

You could also cook it like slicing pork up to 160-170 F, let it rest for 15-30 minutes and then slice and serve.
