Best Damn Grilled Pork Chops

  • Author: RecipeTeacher
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4 pork chops


Thick,  juicy, bone-in pork chops, expertly seasoned and grilled to absolute perfection. With a dry rub that provides the most delicious BBQ sweet and savory flavors.


  • 2 bone-in pork chops, thick cut (1-2″ thick)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2.5 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. Preheat grill with cover closed to medium/high heat for at least 10 minutes. Make sure grates are seasoned (coated generously with oil – see notes below)
  2. Pat pork chops dry and coat with vegetable oil.
  3. Mix all dry ingredients and apply to both sides and edges of pork chops
  4. Place pork chops on grill and leave alone for 5-7 minutes, or until they release from the grill grate with little effort. Use tongs and turn pork chops 1/4 turn to create cross grill marks. Continue grilling for 2-3 more minutes.
  5. Flip pork chops and grill 2nd side for 2-3 minutes, just to sear, and internal temperature of 145°(F)
  6. Remove pork chops from grill and let rest on a plate for 2-3 minutes before carving.


Seasoned grill grate(s): Your grill will have optimal performance if the grates are seasoned. With the grates scraped and cleaned of any excess debris, use a couple of rolled up paper towels dunked in vegetable oil and coat the grates. Wipe away any excess oil. Grates should have a nice, shiny appearance.
