Barbecue Roast Beef

This is the traditional English Roast Beef adapted to barbecue. It is delicious when served with barbecue Yorkshire Pudding.


  • 3 pounds 1350 grams joint of topside beef
  • 1 Tbsp of dry mustard powder hot English is great
  • pinch sea salt
  • ground black pepper to taste


  • Heat covered barbecue to medium heat level.
  • While barbecue is heating, mix the mustard powder with a little water and rub into the beef surface.
  • Add sea salt and ground black pepper.
  • Cover meat and allow to stand at room temperature until barbecue has reached medium heat.
  • Cook for 1 hour for rare to medium, or 1 1/2 hours for well done.
