Yet another great grilled tenderloin. Adjust the hot sauce up or down to suit your tastes. Plan ahead this need to marinate at least 2 hours. Try this one with jasmine rice.

This was so good, I followed the recipe except that I had no dark rum, so I used Mango Rum. It was so good in the barbeque sauce. Very easy dish to make. The meat was moist, tender and very tasty. I will be making this again. Thanks for sharing.
