These punchy BBQ pork chops are just what you need to mix up dinner! Glazy, smoky with a little kick of whiskey, they are sure to wake up your taste buds.

BBQ Pork Chop Glaze

  1. 1. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the ketchup, ½ cup brown sugar, ¼ cup molasses, honey, garlic, Worcestershire, and 1 tbsp Kosher Salt. Mix well, add 1 shot of Whiskey, mix again until sauce becomes smooth. Transfer sauce into an oven proof saucepan.
  2. 2. Heat the saucepan over a hot flame, bring it to a boil and reduce the sauce until it forms a semi-thick glaze.

Cooking Instructions

  1. First, place pork chops onto sheet pan lined with butcher paper. Season generously with brown sugar, salt, and garlic, making sure to coat all sides of the chops. Set aside while you make the glaze.
  2. Fire up your Country Smoker and set the temperature to 375°F. If you’re using a gas or charcoal grill, set it up for medium direct heat.
  3. Grill the pork chops for 10-15 minutes per side. Apply the glaze to the chops on both sides and let the glaze caramelize onto the chops.
  4. Grill the pork chops until they are lightly charred and reach an internal temperature of 145°F - 165°F. Remove the pork chops from the grill and allow them to rest for 5 minutes.
  5. Once the pork chops have finished resting, glaze them again if you choose to. Serve immediately.
