  1. Rinse meat well and pat dry. Place in a glass dish large enough to hold it. In a separate small bowl, combine the sugar, salt, cumin and cardamom. Mix well and rub liberally over the entire roast. Cover and refrigerate for 24 to 36 hours.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for indirect heat and lightly oil grate.
  3. Remove roast from the refrigerator and discard any juices in the dish. Rinse meat well and pat dry.
  4. Grill over indirect low heat for about 1 hour, or until internal pork temperature reaches 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

The spices on this were very subtle and enjoyable. My son would prefer that I not rinse the meat as much as he likes a lot of salt. I on the other hand thought it was seasoned perfectly. Now ...

I thought I would give this a try following the directions -whoops! It was too salty and yes I did rinse it as called for, and I really like salt but this was too much. May try again w/less sa...
