Ingredient Tips

Pork Chops
Bone-in pork chops retain more juices and add flavor to your grilled pork chops, but boneless chops will also work just fine.

Directions

1

Bring the maple syrup, pecans, bourbon and mustard to a gentle simmer. Cover and stir intermittently until the glaze is reduced by a fourth. Remove from heat, cover and reserve.

2

Preheat one side of the grill to medium high, leaving the other side off for indirect cooking.

3

Coat the pork chops with olive oil. Liberally season with chili powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Let the chops rest for a minimum of 20 minutes until they reach room temperature.

4

Place chops on the grill and cook 4-6 minutes per side, basting with olive oil occasionally.

5

Reduce heat to medium and move pork chops to the unlit side of the grill.

6

Baste liberally with the maple-bourbon glaze until the internal temperature reaches 145°F and a thick, caramelized crust forms.

Hot Tip: An instant read digital thermometer will help you determine when your meat is done.
7

Remove from grill and tent under tin foil for 3-5 minutes to rest before serving.

Hot Tip: Resting your grilled pork chops under a foil tent helps the juices redistribute.
8

Drizzle with maple-bourbon glaze and top with pecans.

    Fanfrickintastic! Just had these for dinner. Used Wild Turkey 81 for the bourbon but believe whatever bourbon you like will work great. I used the boneless chops; total time on the grill was about 30-35 mins. Perfect fall recipe!
