Balsamic Pork Loin with Brown Sugar Balsamic Glaze

I love to BBQ, only thing is I run out of recipe ideas. That is why I love reading different food blogs and checking out recipes on Pinterest. Have I mentioned that I LOVE Pinterest? I find tons of recipes there. I found this balsamic pork loin recipe on PInterest. The first time we made it I added on the brown sugar glaze myself thinking the pork needed a little pzazz. I think it makes the meat stand out. My kids really enjoyed it and wanted more after it was all gone. I hope you enjoy it as much as we all did.
