â€¢1 teaspoon ground mustard
â€¢1/2 teaspoon salt
â€¢1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
â€¢1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

â€¢ Prepare grill for indirect heat, using a drip pan, adding half the wood chips if desired. Place roast over drip pan and grill, covered, over medium-low indirect heat for 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°), adding remaining wood chips after 1 hour.
