Trim fat from tenderloins. In shallow dish, combine soy sauce, hoisin sauce, sherry, brown sugar, oil, honey, garlic salt, cinnamon, and 5 spice powder; mix well. Add prepared meat and coat generously. Let stand at room temperature, turning often, for one to two hours.

Place on grill, about 10 inches from coals; cover grill and cook, turning and basting often, about 45 minutes. Meat should be deep brown, but no black. Remove, cool and refrigerate until serving time. Slice into thin diagonal slices and serve with hot mustard and/or sweet & sour sauce. Pork may be served hot as an entree with hot cooked rice and stir-fried vegetables if desired.

Yield: about 40 appetizers
