  • (2) 5-8 ounce pork chops
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano

Cooking Directions

  1. Clean and wash pork chops
  2. Chop garlic finely and slice lemon in half
  3. Season pork with pepper and salt, then place into a plastic bag to be placed in refrigerator, with olive oil, garlic, oregano and then squeeze lemon halves into bag without seeds
  4. Let marinade for at least 30 minutes
  5. Fire up charcoal grill with chimney starter filled with lump hardwood charcoal and ignited by a paper towel dressed with olive oil underneath (do not use lighter fluid). Add a few cherry wood chips into the chimney starter for an additional lite, smokey flavor
  6. When coals are grey, dump into charcoal pit and place grates back on grill and use olive oil dressed paper towel to oil the grates gently (use a long cooking thong as to not burn yourself)
  7. Place pork chops over coals at medium-to-high heat and let sear for 3-4 minutes on each side
  8. Then move pork to a medium heat on the grill and close grill cover for 5 minutes per side (pork will sweat nicely and become moist)
  9. Remove pork from grill, let cool for several minutes and then serve

Let it Rip!
