Just Grill it!!

This is one of my favorite grilling recipes.  It's easy and you can use a super cheap cut of meat.  And really, are there many more things more satisfying than putting a big hunk of meat on the grill?
First, the meat.  You can use anything for this, the cheaper the better, get a roast with lots of marbling.
Now it's time to marinade.  Here is what you'll need.
1 can of cola(the stuff in the red can works best),  about a 1/4 cup of canola oil, 1/2 cup of soy sauce, 3 or 4 cloves of garlic and some ground pepper.   mix it all together.

Now, take your meat and stick it in a big zip lock bag along with the marinade.  Put it in the fridge and forget it for at least 3 hours preferably over night.
When it's almost time to cook, prep your grill, medium heat use lump charcoal if you can, it's not that much more than briquets and gives a better flavor. (besides it just looks cooler).  Make sure that the coals are only on one side of your grill as you'll need to do some indirect grilling later.

Remove your meat from the bag and put directly over the coals just long enough to get a good char on it. About 3-4 minutes per side.
Now move it over to the other side of the grill (with no coals under it)  close the lid and let it cook for about an hour.  Keep your heat from low to medium adding coals if you need to.  Check it to see if it is to your desired level. 
If it's how you like it, take it off the grill and let it rest for a good 15 minutes.  Slice it thin and enjoy, with a big salad and some good bread. Enjoy!!

stay hungry!!
