Grilled Pork Chops

There's nothing like cooking outside on the grill. The weather has been warm, well actually up here the Smokies it's been downright HOT the past two weeks. Fortunately this week, we're going to be staying in the low 80's and it's absolutely perfect for grilling. We all know that when food is cooked outside on the grill, it can't be wrong. This is so simple and quick and doesn't mess up your kitchen!

Grilled Pork Chops -

Season 4 center cut, bone in pork chops with salt, black pepper and garlic powder. Rub the seasoning in with your fingers and let them set for about 5 minutes.

Place the pork chops in a large re-sealable plastic bag and pour about 1/2 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce in the bag.

Seal the bag, squeezing out the air and rub the barbecue sauce into the pork chops. You want the sauce to get all over each square inch of the meat. Place the bag in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to marinate.

Place the chops on a heat outdoor grill on medium-low heat and let then cook up. Turn the pork chops every 5 to 7 minutes until they are completely cooked.

This is Scout, our attack dog and my lookout. She is going to alert me if my husband enters the area. I have a confession. My husband told me that I'm not supposed to use barbecue sauce on the gas grill because it makes a big mess. I did it anyway, but I cleaned the grill. He doesn't know, so don't tell him. Ok, I feel better.

You must be warned. If you serve this to your friends, they won't return the invitation because you have raised the bar.
