Did You Know...
Discard used marinade; it contains bacteria from raw meat that could make you sick. You’ll get all the flavor you need from marinating and brushing during grilling.
If end pieces of pork are thin, prevent overcooking when grilling by coiling meat into round fillets and securing with toothpicks.
