Ingredients

3-4 lb pork loin
1/3 cup grainy mustard
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper
Fresh rosemary and thyme sprigs
Bay leaf pieces
Olive oil for basting

Directions

Poke holes in the pork loin all over with the point of a sharp knife.  Whisk the olive oil into the mustard, add salt and pepper, then rub into the pork.  Insert the sprigs of rosemary and thyme, plus the bay leaf pieces into the holes.

Preheat the gas grill, all burners blazing to 500F.  Turn off the burners on one side, put the roast on the cold side, close the top and grill for 15 minutes.  Turn the burners on the hot side to maintain a temperature of 400 F and continue to grill the roast for about 45 minutes, basting every 15 minutes with olive oil
