Here ya go Paul and y'all - I mixed this up and gave it a good whisk, put the tenderloins in a gallon ZipLoc, poured the marinade in, squeezed out as much air as possible and in the fridge for two days, turned now & then. Smoked with hickory on my drum at 325°, took about 30 minutes to 155°, they were pink in the center which is just right. Any more and they will be dry. Let them rest foiled 15-20 minutes. Turned once, never had time to baste and can't say it made any difference.

No way can I see grilling these 3 hours, regardless of the fire.
