When using coke in the marinade there is something special about the way the sweetness of the coke caramelizes on a hot grill. The rich char frames the moist meat on the inside.

  3. Prepare the grill.
    Place the marinade in a sauce pan and bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer and reduce the sauce until thickened a bit. If still to runny add a slurry of cornstarch and water. You don't want it to thick but thick enough to brush on the pork while grilling

When all sides are browned move to more indirect heat and continue to bast and cook until internal temp is about 140 degree. let rest for 5 minutes then cut into slices.
