Okay, this is my favorite Grilled Pork Chop recipe.
These Grilled Pork Chops have a nice smoky flavor and sweet glaze.
I actually was just experimenting when I tried this recipe. I typically use cedar planks to add extra flavor to my fish when I feel like grilling. For some reason, it never dawned on me to use cedar planks for other types of meat. You know what? I don’t know why. Why wouldn’t I want to infuse smoky flavor into my steak, chicken, or pork?! If you want good flavor then you have to be willing to try new things to make food delicious and exciting. This is especially true for food that is deemed healthy. I don’t know why healthy food gets such a bad rap. Its like I always say, food that is made healthier needs a little extra love. Of course food that is healthier isn’t filled with all the preservatives, artificial flavors, salts, and sugars that are taste-buds and bodies are use to. Therefore, when we eat foods that are healthier (what are bodies are designed to consume anyway) we feel that are are missing out on something because we are not consuming what we are use to. Make sense? Smoking your meat is definitely a great and easy way to add awesome flavor to your food.
When I took these pork chops off the grill, they smelled insanely gorgeous. I mean my back porch smelled like a BBQ pit. All I did was season them with some salt, pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder and let the smoke do the rest of work. To balance out the flavor, I added an easy brown sugar glaze while their smoking and…..its just like heaven. I am telling you, the flavor that you will get from these pork chops is profound! Absolutely incredibly fantastic! This is the last recipe that I a have created as part of Wal-Mart’s and the National Pork Board healthy promotion of pork chops for the summer. I have listed my previous pork chop recipes below in case you missed them.
