This recipe is outstanding! We enjoyed this flavorful impressive dinner after not too much effort in preparation. I skipped the zucchini and instead threw in diced red potatoes and sliced onions with the yellow squash. I reduced the amount of oil to 2.5 tsp (1.5 for veggies, 1 for rub) and felt it was perfectly flavored and seasoned. I will be making this again and not changing a thing. I did take another reviewer's advice and cooked to 145 and let it stand for 10 minutes.
