Root beer pork loin?

Anyone ever tried a pork loin soaked in root beer over night.... My friend told me to try it and sprinkle brown sugar on it befor I put it on the grill.... Anyone ever done this and how long what temp?

    I've done a ham marinated in Dr. Pepper, it was quite good.  This sounds interesting too!  
    Live fast, die young, and leave a well-marbled corpse.

  • I'm trying this as we speak.
    I will let you know how it turns out.
  • Holy cow I forgot to come back with the results.
    They were incredible. I did use a little to much smoke, but it actually helped with the left overs.
    I used a can of A&W Rootbeer and soaked the Porkloin for about 8hrs. I also used some butt rub and Johnnys seasoning salt to coat the loin just before laying it on the grill.
    I seared the loin direct at about 500* turning once, then added the plate setter(legs up)and brought the heat down to 225* and smoked it with mesquite and applewood chips until I got the proper internal temp.

    My mother-in-law's specialty - Rum & Coke Ribs.  Braised and finished on the grill... often thought of taking her recipe to the egg level and see what results.

    Her marinade is more than just cola though - lots of cinnamon, soy sauce, molasses, garlic, ginger, and a bunch of other stuff - probably tastes like Root Beer!

    My sister does an awesome dr pepper butt she calls the "hot proctologist". I'll try and hit her up for the recipe.
