Can I use Boneless Pork Chops?

Yes, you can use boneless pork chops with this recipe. We have grilled both boneless and bone-in pork chops and it depends on the thickness which one is better.

Bone-in is are favorite to grill but they need to be at least one inch thick. You can also grill pork loin chops.

Boneless pork chops are good but they seem to get dried out faster than bone-in pork chops.

  • Turn down heat – If pork chops are grilling to quickly, turn down the heat.
  • Don’t Overcook – Make sure to use your meat thermometer to check for doneness. If your pork chops cook to long, they can be dry and tough to eat.

How Long do I Grill Pork Chops on a Grill?

Bone-in are flavorful pork chops. But they need need to be cooked the right length of time. Pork chops can be a little tricky to grill so that is why we always use a meat thermometer to ensure that we don’t under cook or over cook the pork chops. Plus to ensure that it is safe to eat.

When we grill pork chops we start off by cooking on the direct medium high heat for about 2 minutes on each side. Then we place the pork chops on the other side of the grill. Which is were the indirect heat is for the remainder of the time.

We always watch closely because pork chops can get dry real fast if cooked even a minute to long. Make sure that the pork chops have an internal temperature of 145 degrees F before serving.

Grilled BBQ Pork Chops Sides

There are many sides that go perfectly with pork chops. When we grill, we like to make sides that can be make on the grill so it is easy cleanup. While your pork is cooking, you can prepare these amazing sides.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Store Leftover Pork Chops

Refrigerate the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

How to know when Pork Chop is done?

To ensure your pork chops are cooked to the right internal temperature, we recommend using a meat thermometer. Make sure the internal temperature of the pork chops reaches 145 degrees. Using an meat thermometer instead of slicing the pork chops to check for doneness, keeps the juices locked in.

When do I add BBQ Sauce to Pork Chops?

We recommend adding the BBQ sauce at the end of the cook time as the sugar in the barbecue sauce will cause the pork chops to burn. We also serve a side of BBQ sauce for dipping.
