Pork Chops

Ingredients

3–4 pork chops (1 lb) 3/4 inch thick

Trim off excess fat and pepper both sides of the pork chops.

Place the pork chops on the grill over direct high heat with the lid closed. Cook for 2 minutes.

Turn the pork chops over and continue grilling, lid closed, for another 2 minutes.

Reduce the heat to medium-low on a gas grill or move the chops to a cooler portion of a charcoal grill.

Brush a liberal amount of barbecue sauce on the chops and then turn them over. Brush more barbecue sauce on the top side.

Cook for another 2 or 3 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chops are 145° F.

Remove the pork chops from the grill to a serving platter and let rest for about 5 minutes.
