1 (4-lb.) boneless pork loin roast, trimmed
Kitchen string
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons chopped garlic

1. Tie pork with kitchen string, securing at 2-inch intervals. Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. Stir together garlic and next 3 ingredients. Rub over pork.

Move pork over unlit side, and grill, covered with grill lid, 45 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 145° to 150°. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
