  1. In a large saucepan, stir together the mustard, onion, honey, beer and vegetable oil. Bring marinade just to a boil, stirring, and remove from heat. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. Sprinkle pork loin with salt and pepper. Place meat in a large, resealable plastic bag or in a glass dish large enough to hold it. Pour in 2 of the marinade turning occassionaly. Refrigerate at least 8 or up to 24 hours. Let stand at room temperature for 40 minutes before barbecuing.
  3. Set up the barbecue for rotisserie cooking, placing a drip pan below. Heat barbecue to about 400°F, and place the pork on the spit in the barbecue.*
  4. Reduce heat to MEDIUM LOW, about 375°F. Cook about 1 1/2 hours, until it is golden brown and the internal temperature reaches 155°F.
  5. Let rest, tented with foil on a platter about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, place the pan of prepared sauerkraut on the grill to heat through. Bring remaining marinade to a boil, and reduce slightly, about 5 minutes.
  6. To serve: Spoon sauerkraut around the pork, and pour the reduced marinade over top.
