  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Place the pork roast in a large zip-top plastic bag.
  3. Step 3

    Combine the remaining ingredients (beer, honey, Dijon mustard, chopped onion, olive oil, minced garlic, rosemary, salt, black pepper) and pour this marinade over the pork. Seal the bag and allow it to marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.
  4. Step 4

    Preheat grill to medium heat. Remove the pork roast from the bag and place it on a rotisserie over a drip pan. Reserve the marinade.
  5. Step 5

    Bring the marinade to a boil in a saucepan and then simmer 5 to 7 minutes. Remove the sauce from the heat.
  6. Step 6

    Baste the roast with the sauce every 20 minutes. The roast should cook for 1 1/2 hours or so and will reach an internal temperature of 160 F when it is cooked through.
  7. Step 7

    Remove the roast from the heat once cooked and let sit for at least 5 minutes before carving.
  8. Step 8

    Carve pork roast crosswise into 1/2-inch slices to serve. Enjoy the pork loin roast with grilled vegetable skewers and your favorite side dishes. Note that you need to boil and simmer the marinade before you use it as a basting sauce. This will kill bacteria from the raw meat. When basting, take a small amount of the sauce to the grill while keeping the rest separate until needed. This prevents contaminating the sauce again from contact with meat that is not yet fully cooked.
