Great recipe and I got many compliments. All of the flavors were excellent. I did make a few changes. I reduced all the dry ingredients to 1 teaspoon. It just seemed like a tablespoon was a lot. I also added about 1/4 cup of soy sauce and 1/4 cup of orance juice. I reduced the honey to 1/4 cup as recommended by another reviewer. I think dijon mustard would be good as well. We cooked it on the grill as instructed and we took it off when internal temp was 130 and welet it stand about 10 minutes. YUM!

Terrific recipe! Our family loved it! I sliced the loin in 1 inch slices, marinated, & grilled. Just great! Please forgive me, but I used rum (no whiskey in the house). I figured with the honey, the rum should be ok. I think the whiskey will add a whole 'nother dimension (which I will pick up to have on hand next time)! Thank you!

Served this to 4 adults, all who gave it three stars. .. liked it but didn't love it. A tad bit too sweet for all of us, so if I make it again, I'll decrease the honey to 1/4 cup and eliminate the sugar. I also added some cumin. I left my tenderloin whole, marinated it for almost 48 hrs in the fridge, then cooked uncovered in the oven at 325 degrees for 40 minutes.
