Traditional porchetta is slow-roasted pork flavoured with herbs under a crunchy layer of crackling. Here, prosciutto makes the perfect lower-fat alternative to the crackling without sacrificing flavour. Leftovers make a great sandwich filling. For best results, refrigerate the raw herbed roast overnight.

In bowl, combine parsley, rosemary, sage, garlic, mustard, fennel seeds, lemon zest, pepper, salt and hot pepper flakes; stir in oil. Spread over pork roast. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Overlapping slices, arrange prosciutto over top of roast. With kitchen string, tie roast in 5 or 6 places to secure. Transfer to roasting pan.

Set foil drip pan over 1 burner of 2-burner barbecue or centre burner of 3-burner barbecue. Heat remaining burner(s) to medium. Place pork on greased grill over drip pan; close lid and grill until juices run clear when pork is pierced and instant-read thermometer inserted into centre reads 160?F (71?C), about 1-1/2 hours. Transfer to cutting board and tent with foil; let stand for 10 minutes before carving into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices.
