  1. Freshly grind peppercorns & piri piri chili with a mortar & pestle or in a coffee grinder.
  2. If desired, diagonally slice into the one side with the layer of fat, not quite cutting through the fat, in parallel lines.
  3. Combine spices – pepper, piri piri chili, smoked paprika, Ancho chili – in a large, flat bottomed bowl or baking dish where you can coat the roast easily.
  4. Coat the roast with the spices all over and rub it in slightly to really get that flavor going.
  5. Preheat grill to high. Prepare charcoal packet with doubled up aluminum foil, making a sealed package, poked with a knife a number of times on the top. Place it underneath the grate you will be using to grill the meat very carefully. * Tip: Be sure to spray the grates with non-stick spray or grease with olive oil.
  6. Brown meat on all sides about 3 – 4 min per side to get a great crust on it, turning it halfway through on each side to get nice grill marks. * Tip: Be sure the grill doesn’t flame up excessively. * Tip: Replace packets of charcoal as necessary.
  7. Turn off a burner, and place the roast on that grill, leaving the other burners on. Roast on the grill with the lid shut, trying to maintain a temperature of 300 degrees inside the grill. For a 2 lb roast, it should take about 1 1/2 hrs on the grill, checking often. * Tip: Keep your eye on the BBQ thermometer. If necessary, turn a 2nd burner off, to lower the temperature.
  8. How to BBQ Pepper Crusted Eye of Round Beef Roast - cookingwithkimberly.comOnce roast is done, remove and cover loosely with a foil tent to allow meat to rest for 5 – 10 min.
  9. Slice thickly or thinly and serve hot. * Tip: The more rare pieces are near the center, and the more well done pieces are nearer the ends.

Enjoy with some equally hearty side dishes, and maybe a salad too!
