Add honey glaze & serve immediately

I love to BBQ & especially during the summer I love experimenting with new marinades. This dish is tender, juicy, & delicious. 

 There are many herbs that can be added to this marinade, rosemary, sage, thyme, etc. If you have white wine or cooking wine, add it to the glaze.
