  • 4 1 LB Thick Cut Pork Chops well marbled
  • 1 TBSP Olive or other oil
  • 1 TSP Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 TSP Fresh Cracked Pepper


  • Remove the chops from the refrigerator about an hour before cooking.
  • Lightly coat with the oil and generously season with the salt and pepper.
  • When you're ready, turn the grill on high to get it nice and hot.
  • Add the chops at a 45 degree angle to the grill grates. For thick cut chops, we are going to allow to cook 4 minutes per side for each rotation on the grill.
  • After 4 minutes, rotate to the hot side of the grill. See the instructions in the blog post for varying the temperature under the chops.
  • Check the temperature of the meat close to the bone or in the thickest part of the chop. It should register 145 degrees.
  • Remove from the grill, cover with foil and allow to rest about 5 minutes.
  • Serve hot and enjoy!


PLEASE NOTE: The prep time for this recipe does not include allowing your meat to come to room temp. Please factor that into the overall time!
Please see the notes in the post about varying the temperature on your grill to cook these thick-cut pork chops.
Dependent on how thick your chops are and how hot your grill can get, you may need more or less time for each flip. The times provided in this post are guidelines. Cook your meat to a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees.
