Yield: 6 Servings
Categories: Seasonings, Main Dishes, Marinades, Meats

Ingredients:

----------------------------------MARINADE----------------------------------
1 c Olive oil
1/2 c Bourbon
3 tb Honey
1/2 c Lemon juice
1 tb Minced garlic
1 1/2 tb Fresh ginger root
-- peeled and grated
1/4 c Soy sauce
1/2 c Thinly sliced onion
2 tb Fresh sage
-- coarsely chopped
2 ts Pepper
1 ts Salt


---------------------------------MAIN DISH---------------------------------
3 Pork tenderloins

-----------------------------GRILLING MATERIALS-----------------------------
Charcoal briquettes
6 Wood chips (up to 8)
-- preferably fruitwood

Combine all marinade ingredients; blend well. The marinade for this dish
can be prepared a day in advance; marinating should go on for 24 hours.

Lay the pork tenderloins in a ceramic or glass dish and pour marinade over
them. Turn the tenderloins several times during the 24 hours that they are
marinating in the refrigerator. When ready to cook, pat the pork dry.

Preheat charcoal in an outdoor grill and soak the wood chips in water for
30 minutes. Add the chips to the hot coals. Roast the pork evenly for
about 40 minutes, until its internal temperature is 165 F. If pork is to be
eaten hot, allow it to sit on the edge of the grill for 10 minutes or so
after it is cooked so that the juices can be drawn back into the meat.

Good served either hot or cold, accompanied by a green tomato chutney.
