I have been cooking this roast since the late 1960's with the following differences. Wrap the roast in cheesecloth at least two thicknesses, then place the roast on the layer of salt, completely cover the roast with salt top and sides with at least one inch or more of salt, I use a stainless steel turkey roasting pan. Place in a preheated 400 degree oven and roast for 1 hour, lower the temperature to 300 degrees and cook to desired temp using a meat thermometer (this roast is best served rare to medium rare), When desired temperatureis reached, roast will be evenly cooked from outer to inner cut. Remember this roast continues to cook as it is setting. After taking in roast out of the oven, remove the roast from the salt, using two large kitchen forks, and remove the cheesecloth. There will not be any heavy salt that needs to be scraped from the roast. The roast is now ready to carve and serve.
