Rotisserie Cooking BBQ Beef Sirloin (with Root Beer!)
One of the nicest things about rotisserie cooking on your BBQ is, once you get it setup and running, there's not much to do but sit in the shade with a cold beer, listen to it go round and round and wait for those magnificent BBQ smells.
For this rotisserie recipe we're cooking a sirloin roast, quite likely the most flavorful cuts of beef.
And just to give this flavor a slight tweak we're marinating the beef in a root beer marinade.
The unusal taste of root beer seems to be a perfect partner to complement the taste of sirloin beef, the licorice and cinnamon accents I think.
Plus it's got Sassafras in it, and I just like that word.

Prep time: 10 minutes
In-Direct Heat: 350F - 375F
Note: for best results marinate 4 hours up to overnight before cooking.
Refrigerate covered at least 4 hours or up to overnight.
Shown here is actually two sirloin roasts installed on the rotisserie spit end to end.
Remove the grates and place a disposable aluminum pan over the burners large enough to catch all roast drippings and to hold water to keep roast moist while cooking.
Rub the roast all over with the olive oil.
Season the roast with the pepper, salt and rosemary.
Ensure the pan is placed under the roast and is 1/2 full of water.
Turn on the rotisserie and make sure the roast rotates freely during cooking.
Close the lid.
Remove it when the internal temperature reaches 125F for medium-rare.
Allow to rest for 5 - 10 minutes before carving to allow juices to redistribute.
