Prepare outdoor grill for direct medium-hot grilling. For a gas grill, preheat grill on high. Adjust temperature to 400 degrees F. For a charcoal grill, build fire and let burn until coals are covered with white ash. Spread coals and let burn for 15-20 minutes.
Lightly oil cooking grate. Remove pork from marinade, drain briefly, but do not scrape off solids. Place on grill, cover grill. Cook, turning occasionally, until browned and instant-read thermometer inserted in center of pork reads 145 degrees F, about 20-27 minutes. Transfer to carving board and let stand 3-5 minutes.
