Grilled Pork Chops

Something different for the tailgate…grilled pork chops. Bone in or center cut. Not everything has to be about the beef and brats, though I know some Texans that would beg to differ.

All you need to do is set up your Brinkmann grill and grill 6-8 minutes per side over medium heat.

Pork chops are versatile too. You can cook them up with just garlic powder & black pepper, or you can marinate them in many different ways. You can make them Oriental style by marinating with soy sauce, garlic, ginger & sesame seeds. Go Polynesian with pineapple juice & brown sugar. Cajun style with some hot sauce. Or even southwestern with chili powder, minced onions & a touch of cumin. Serve with BBQ sauce or without.

Who said the tailgate menu had to be just steak? Get out there and grill to your hearts content. If you can grill it at home, you can do it tailgating. Prep at home the night before is not such a bad thing. You can even get your marinade ready the night before & just pour it in bags with the chops on the way to the stadium parking lot. That way it won’t be too over powering.

I find the other white meat to be a great tailgating asset. It doesn’t have to be chops either. Grilled pork tender loin, pork cube kabobs, even pulled pork, from the slow cooker, are great at tailgating parties. Imagination is key!
