¼ cup light brown sugar
¼ cup honey
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 lime, juiced or RTU lime juice

2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 teaspoon dried parsley

Preheat grill to 350 degrees F for 2-zone cooking (one indirect side of heat, one direct heat side).
Prep the roast. Trim any excess silver skin. Leave a small fat cap on the top of the roast. Drizzle the roast with olive oil & season with seasoning mixture.
