"Don't be afraid of all the salt and spice. They provide full flavor through out the meat. The kick comes from the Cajun seasoning that is put on just before grilling. For diners who like less heat you may omit the Cajun seasoning. A great company roast, and everyone can have their meat cooked to their preferred doneness." — by MATHTUTORRITA
