  • Step 7 – Rub Glaze – Rub the glaze mixture onto both sides of the pork chops. Brush with a basting brush for the last 5 minutes of the cooked time.  See more Sauces for Pork Chops.

Recipe Tips

  • Hot Grill – Make sure to grill on a medium high heat and clean grill. This prevents the meat from sticking and giving you those beautiful grill marks.
  • Maple Glaze – Prepare the glaze in a saucepan and heat to a boil. This allows for the glaze to thicken. Remove from heat after simmer glaze.
  • Grilling Pork Chops –We recommend giving the pork chops a nice sear and grilling over direct heat. Then lower the heat and grill over indirect heat. This allows the pork chops to be tender and juicy.
  • Serving – These pork chops are delicious served with these Grilled Pork Chop Side Dishes.

How Can I Tell if Pork Chops are Cooked

The pork chops are done when the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees. When cooking meats it is important to use a meat thermometer to check the pork chops temperature.

This is the best method instead of slicing into the pork chops.
