  • Get a meat thermometer, and keep track of the internal temperatures
  • When preparing a grilled pork chop sauce or rub, consider using freshly chopped pepper for the best taste and flavor.

Factors to Consider When You Want to Prepare BBQ Pork Chops

factors to consider when you want to prepare bbq pork chops
  • It would be great to start by brining the pork in some garlic, spices, and freshly chopped pepper for just the right amount of time. During the barbequing process, ensure that you also baste the chops with some bbq sauce, to help improve the flavor. Once you remove the pork chops from the grill, let them sit for a few minutes, such that they soak up all those juices.
  • Also, consider using store-bought bbq sauce for this recipe, because it’s highly convenient. Plus, you can also prepare some DIY sauce.
  • The best sections of the meat to consume would be the bone-in pork chops, which have lots of flavor. Furthermore, they are less likely to dry out as you cook the meat. You can prepare these pork chops by using an indoor grill or perhaps with an outdoor grill. The average cook time varies, depending on various factors such as the density of the pork chops. It would be great to go for pork chops, which are, on average, one inch thick.
  • It would also be great to use kosher salt for this recipe, rather than using the conventional table salt. Kosher salt has a unique taste and measures differently to the salt you are used to in meals. 

What is Pork Brining?

Brining is a similar process to marinating. That said, rather than creating a sauce type marinade, it involves the use of saltwater. In most cases, this includes additional spices to help give a unique flavor to the bland meat. Furthermore, brining is commonly used when preparing other meat types such as meat and fish.

What are the Benefits of Brining?

Brining is an excellent way to impart a unique flavor to your meat. Not only that, but it also makes the meat tender, which is ideal for meats that dry out fast. Furthermore, brining also reduces the cooking time, which offers added convenience. The brine might contain some sugar, which means the meat might have a golden-brown crust during the grilling process.

For this pork chop recipe, it would be great to ensure that you don’t brine the meat for longer than 24 hours. If so, the meat can become overly salty. Any recipe that involves brining ensures you check the brining times to guarantee a superior taste result.
