  • 1 New York strip roast, 4 1/2 to 5 lb.
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, cut into 6 wedges
  • 2 sweet potatoes, about 1 1/4 pounds total, peeled, halved lengthwise and cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 pound red potatoes, halved
  • 2 fresh rosemary sprigs
  • Barbecue sauce for serving


  • 1 Place the roast on a baking sheet and generously season on all sides with salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  • 2 Brush the roast with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour. In a large bowl, stir together the onion, sweet potatoes, red potatoes and the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.
  • 3 Prepare a hot fire in a grill. Place a steel grill roaster in the center of the grill, cover and preheat for 5 minutes.
  • 4 Place the roast, fat side down, in the pan and sear until well browned, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Turn the roast over and sear for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes more. Turn off the center burners and reduce the outside burners to medium-high. Place the vegetables along the sides of the pan and lay the rosemary sprigs on top.
  • 5 Cover the grill and cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the roast registers 130°F for medium-rare, about 55 minutes, or until done to your liking; adjust the burners as needed to maintain the internal grill temperature at 325° to 350°F.
  • 6 Transfer the roast to a carving board, cover loosely with aluminum foil and let rest for 15 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to a bowl. Slice the roast and serve with the vegetables and barbecue sauce alongside.
