  1. In a small bowl, combine the first nine ingredients. Pour 1 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add the pork. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Prepare the grill for indirect heat using a drip pan. Place pork over drip pan and grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 25-30 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160°, basting occasionally with reserved marinade. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. If desired, serve with remaining marinade. Yield: 6 servings.
