Love grilled 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, enjoy perfectly grilled pork chops in minutes. 

Step 1: Prep the pork chops

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

For the perfect balance of savory and a hint of sweetness, season the pork chops with Dad’s Sweet BBQ rub and Dad’s All Purpose rub. It’s the perfect blend mix on pork. Make sure to cover all sides of the meat.  Do not be shy with the seasoning. Set aside and allow the chops to sweat and absorb the seasoning.

Dad’s Seasonings

Must have grillin seasonings!

Step 2: Grill the perfect pork chops

Preheat the grill to high heat or 450 degrees and set for dual zone grilling.

Place the seasoned pork chops on the direct side of the grates first. Flip every 2-3 minutes to get an even cook throughout.  Once you see the a dark brown crust around the edges, move to the indirect side to finish grilling. Once the internal temperature reaches 140 degrees, remove them off the grill.  Total grill time should be between 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness of the meat.

Let the grilled 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!

Recipe Tip

Flipping the pork chops frequently allows the meat to cook evenly inside, especially on very thick cuts. Keeping it on too long on a side will dry out the meat.

ALWAYS rest cooked meat. That will keep the juices inside and allow you to enjoy tender meat with each slice.
