  • 3 lbs pork (use shoulder, boneless pork roast or tenderloin)
  • Marinade for Pork
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt

  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  2. Combine the marinade ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix thoroughly.
  3. Dip each piece of pork into the marinade to coat well.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

  6. During the last 10 minutes, baste with the marinade.
  7. Tip: Barbecued pork has the best flavor when cooked over charcoal, but it can also be cooked in the oven.
  8. Line a roasting pan with foil and add some water to prevent smoking.
  9. Put the pan on the lower rack.
  10. Place the pork on the upper rack, 3 inches from the heat source.
