Grilled Herb Pork Chops

I am so happy that grilling season is here and we can be outdoors and enjoying our outdoor kitchen.  I had been to the garden early in the morning and got a big basket of collard greens and decided to grill some butterfly pork chops to go with the collards. These chops were just delicious and we will be having this recipe over and over.

Remove the chops and cover with foil and let set for 10 minutes during that time the internal temperature will reach 170 degrees and the chops will be done.

  4. Oh my gosh it made me hungry just to look at your pictures. The rub and sauce sound wonderful. I plan on trying it out on some Iowa Chops which are about 3 inches thick so the cooking time will be a lot different but should be fabulous! Thanks so much for stopping by the BBQ Block Party! We hope you return next week with another great recipe.
