      Fantastic!!! I made the marinade and let the pork marinade for 1-2 hours before grilling. OMG!! The smell while this was on the grill was so wonderful, it will bring your neighbors over asking what you are grilling!! I served this with some rice and green beans for a wonderful dinner. Thanks for sharing the recipe, which we will make again! Made for ZWT 9.
