  • 1 Beef Topside Joint
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil (extra virgin)
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (crushed)


  • Get the Beef Topside joint out the fridge about 1 hour before you want to start cooking.
  • In a bowl mix together the Olive Oil, Lemon Juice and Garlic and mix well.
  • Using a basting brush cover the joint with your marinade and allow to sit until ready to cook.
  • Light the BBQ, setting up for indirect cooking and bring the temperature up to around 200°C. Just before you want to cook put a couple of wood chunks onto the coals.
  • Add the spit and start cooking. Monitor the internal temperature until it gets to the required level. 60°C will give you a medium cook.
