BBQ Rubbed Grilled Bone In Pork Loin Chops

Ingredients

4 - 1 inch thick bone in pork loin chops

3 tbsp. Sleepy Hollow Smoke Beef & Pork Rub

Instructions:

Before cooking:

Rinse and dry chops

Lightly sprinkle Sleepy Hollow Smoke Beef & Pork Rub over both sides of each pork chop and set aside.

Determine the method of cooking, below we have described three different methods to achieve a fantastic result depending on your equipment (and the weather).

  1. Charcoal or Wood Grill

Light your fire for direct heat cooking. When the fire is ready, spread the coals, so you get an even heat for cooking. 

Note: If using a Big Green Egg or a Kamado, remove the ceramic plate for direct grilling over the coals.

Place the pork chops on the grill and allow about 4 minutes per side. If you are into grill marks, turn the pork chops a ¼ turn after 2 minutes. After 4 minutes, flip the pork chops and allow another 4 minutes rotating after 2 minutes if grill marks are desired. 

  1. Gas Grill

Light your grill for direct heat cooking at a temperature of 400 degrees F. When you have achieved the desired temperature, place the pork chops on the grill and close the lid and allow about 4 minutes per side. If you are into grill marks, turn the pork chops a ¼ turn after 2 minutes. Cook an additional 4 minutes, flip the pork chops and allow another 4 minutes rotating a ¼  turn after 2 minutes. 

  1. Oven

Set your oven to 400 degrees F. When the oven is at temperature, Place the chops on a cooking sheet lined with aluminum foil, and put them into the oven. Flip chops over after 4 min. It should take about 8 minutes to cook. 

  • For all methods 

Check the temp using a thermometer, (preferably instant read) probe the meat (do not touch the bone). You are looking for an internal temperature of 145 degrees. Once you achieve temp, pull the pork chops and place on a cutting board.  Lightly cover with an aluminum foil tent and let rest for 10 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute in the meat. DO NOT TIGHTLY COVER THE PORK CHOPS WITH FOIL AS THEY WILL OVERCOOK. Remember the meat keeps cooking with residual heat after they have been removed from the heat.
