Love pork chops but intimidated by their thickness?  Or worse, do you tend to over cook this cut of meat?  Let me show you how to grill the perfect pork chops.  Tender and juicy, low and slow is the name of the game.  This method will guarantee delicious chops every time.

Simple seasoning is all that’s needed

Pork Chop

Scoring fat cap

Pork is a deliciously flavorful and fatty cut of meat.  All you need is a little bit of seasoning to enhance the natural flavors.

To start, pat the pork dry and score the fat cap.  This prevents the pork chop from curling up while the fat renders and shrinks.

Next, drizzle with some olive oil that will work as the binder. Season with your choice of all purpose spice.  For this recipe I used a test sample of my future GWD spice which will be available in Spring 2023.

Since pork chops are thick cuts of meat, don’t be shy on the seasoning.  Make sure to cover all sides of the meat.  Set aside and allow the chops to sweat and absorb the seasoning.

How to grill the perfect pork chops.

Seasoned pork chop on the grill

Preheat the grill to 300 degrees and set for direct heat. Place the seasoned pork chops directly on the grill grates and flip them every 2-3 minutes to get an even cook throughout.  Once the internal temperature reaches 140 degrees, remove them off the grill.  Total grill time should be between 20 and 30 minutes depending on the thickness of the meat.

Let the perfect pork chops rest for 10 minutes which will help redistribute all the juices, finish cooking and leave the meat nice and tender.  Serve and enjoy!
