Used a Raichlen recipe this time, from the new book. I forget the origin...Serbian? Croatian? Something like that, I think.

Internals are ham, provolone, bacon (home cured).

I didn't follow his technique, which was entirely direct, and a quick cook. Instead, I went indirect, and then dropped the spider in and gave it a quick sear. Turned out beautiful and tasty. The reverse-sear method gave the exterior and almost crispy texture.

    At what temp did you do during the indirect part and during the sear part? this look great and I thinking of trying it to.
  • I probably did the indirect roast at 350F. The sear doesn't much matter, just friggin' hot. I use a spider, which gets the meat right down over the coals, so it's quite warm down there. You're not trying to cook to a certain temp during the sear, you just want some color on the outside of the meat. The hotter your fire, the faster you turn the roast.

    It's a nice cook. Quite easy, but looks impressive to guests. Do a forum search on "roulade" and go back a couple years and look for a post by Little Chef. As I recall, she explained the process pretty well. Heck, any of the roulade search results that have pics will probably give you some good tips. Here's a quick writeup I did following a cook a couple years ago: http://we3hardings.blogspot.com/2009/07/recent-meals.html
