Salt the roast all over with salt the day before you plan on cooking it and refrigerate overnight, uncovered.
Preheat oven to 200°F. Place roast on rack in roasting pan. Rub all over with oil and freshly cracked black pepper.
Place roasting pan in oven until the center of the roast reads 120°F for medium-rare for 4 hours.

Once the oven reaches 500°F, remove the foil and put the roast back in the oven. Cook for 10-15 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and rest for 15 minutes before serving.
