4. It should be fully immersed.
5. Store covered for 24 hours in the refrigerator, turning occasionally.
6. When ready, remove from the refrigerator, discard the marinade & bring meat back to room temperature.
7. Place on a hot BBQ about 6' from the coals & grill for about 10-12 minutes per side for medium-rare (pink) meat.
