Learn how to grill juicy pork chops with this easy recipe. These thick cut pork chops are seasoned with a simple dry rub, grilled until extra tender. 


  • 1 tablespoon Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated garlic
  • 1/2 tablespoon coarse black pepper
  • (4) one-pound bone-in pork chops

Grilled Peaches, for serving (optional)

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
  • 4 peaches, halved and pitted

Brine (Optional)


  1. Prepare Brine (Optional): In a pot, boil water. Add kosher salt and sugar. Stir until dissolved. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
  2. Stir in 4 cups of ice until mostly melted and brine is room temperature.
  3. Place pork chops in a bowl/container. Pour brine over chops, ensuring they’re fully submerged.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight for best results. Before cooking, remove chops from brine, rinse, and pat dry.
  5. Grilling Instructions: Mix salt, garlic powder, and black pepper in a small bowl for pork rub.
  6. Coat pork chops with dry rub, covering all sides.
  7. Heat gas or charcoal grill to 350°F (medium to medium-high heat).
  8. Cook chops for 8-10 minutes per side, or until until seared and internal temperature reaches 145°F. Use an instant-read thermometer for accuracy.
  9. Grilled Peaches (Optional): Mix melted butter and brown sugar. Brush over peach halves. Grill cut side down for 4 minutes per side until soft with grill marks.
  10. Remove from grill and serve pork chops with grilled peaches on top. Note: Pork chops may have a slight pink center, which is normal.
