Everything imaginable can be found in this thread.
^^^what they said. barbafunkoramaque kinda laid down the law on that one.
I'll just throw in that it'd probably be a good idea to go with a straight up salt/pepper (dalmation) rub the first time out. Coarse salt, like sea salt or kosher salt, and coarse grind black pepper. Keep it simple on the rub! Other than that, you're looking for probe tender & rest - there's a lot of info to digest, but no need to overcomplicate it.
