Grilled Pork Chops with Apple-Bourbon Glaze

Hands-on time 25 mins
Total time 12 hrs, 55 mins
Yield Makes 4 servings
The key to success here is to brush the Apple-Bourbon Glaze on the chops during the last few minutes on the grill, turning and brushing often to create a layered, lacquered look. Garnish the chops with grilled halves of small apples brushed with the glaze.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 4 (12-oz.) bone-in pork rib chops
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Apple-Bourbon Glaze

How to Make It

  1. Stir together first 5 ingredients. Brush pork with olive oil, and rub both sides with sugar mixture. Place pork in a 9- x 13-inch baking dish; cover and chill 12 to 24 hours. Remove pork from refrigerator, and let stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare glaze.

  2. Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Grill chops, covered with grill lid, 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until almost done. Brush chops with glaze; turn and brush other side with glaze. Grill, covered with grill lid, 2 minutes.

  3. Repeat process, without grill lid and turning chops every 10 seconds, until glaze thickens and chops are cooked through.
