    During the last hour of cooking, roast the squash. Split the squash length-wise and drizzle with olive oil. Season the interior with salt and pepper and place cut-side up on a foil-lined baking sheet. Place the baking sheet directly on the grill grates, next to the sauce and cook the squash until the flesh is tender and begins to shred and pull away from the skin.
