We’ve found The Ultimate Pork Chops. SO tender and juicy! TONS of great flavor! Seriously delicious!! One of the best pork chops we’ve ever grilled.

These Ultimate Pork Chops take a little planning. You need to brine the pork chops overnight before grilling. The brine is a mixture of water, salt and sugar. Brining the pork chops will make them super tender and juicy. We were able to cut these pork chops with our butter knives!!

After brining the pork chops, just give them a rub with the spice mixture and grill. Pork chops are done when they reach an internal temperature of 145ºF. Just use a meat thermometer to check the chops for doneness.

We used bone-in pork chops because that is what we prefer. Feel free to use some thick boneless pork chops if you aren’t a fan of bone-in chops.

    1. I did these under the broiler. I just put the rack down a notch an watched them closely. They were tender and juicy and yummy ! Great recipe !

  1. These were amazing! So tender and juicy – and flavorful. Will definitely be our go-to when it comes to grilled pork chops. It says something about a recipe when it’s all thumbs up from our family – and it was two thumbs up from everyone. Thanks so much!!

    1. I cooked in my air fryer 400 degrees for 12 mins. They were very good. Going to try on chicken next time. A keeper. Thanks.9

  2. These were absolutely delicious. I cooked them on the stovetop and they turned out perfect! My whole family loved them. I made extra for leftovers and they were even better the next day. I'm definitely making these again!

  3. I dearly love these ultimate Pork chops great flavor tender and easy to make I did not change a thing on this recipe it is perfect just the way it is.

  4. Im going to smoke them in my Bradley smoker tommorrow. After they sit in the brine over nite. Hope to keep you informed on the results. Gord

  5. I bought whatever was on sale. I didn't have time to marinate overnight but, still came out tender and delicious. Would definitely make again.

  6. I already had pork chops out for tonight and when I saw your recipe I thought what the heck give it a try. I am so glad I did…the first thing my husband said was, did you do something different to the pork chops? He is very picky so I thought oh no but he went on to say they were some of the most tender and best flavored pork chops he had ever eaten. I cut back some on paprika because I know that is a flavor he doesn’t really care for and I cooked them on the indoor grill. Fabulous – thanks for a great recipe.
