  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

  • Four teaspoons cumin

  • Two tablespoons black pepper

  • Two teaspoons onion powder

  • Two tablespoons coarse salt (kosher or sea)

  • Two teaspoons garlic powder

  • One tablespoon cayenne pepper

  • 1/4 cup paprika

  • Two teaspoons dry mustard

  • Two teaspoons sage

  • Two teaspoons coriander powder

  • Two teaspoons thyme powder


  • For truly memorable pork chops, you will need to begin with a rub

  • Take all of the ingredients listed above for your rub and thoroughly mix them together. 

  • Liberally rub your mixture all over your meat.

  • Place your pork chops in a plastic or glass container with a lid or wrap them in plastic wrap.

  • Put your meat in the refrigerator for between two and 48 hours. The longer you leave your pork chops in the refrigerator the better.

  • If you are using a gas grill, fire-up every single burner. 

  • You want to maintain a temperature of about 275 degrees Fahrenheit or 135 degrees Celcius.

  • Make certain the side with the bone is facing the fire.

  • Never let the pork chops overlap the fire when cooking the meat.

  • Close the lid, be patient and do not peek.

  • Open the lid as little as possible to do the job.

  •  If you are using a gas grill, you can maintain the correct temperature of 275 degrees Fahrenheit or 135 degrees Celsius by using the oven thermometer.

  • Use your instant-read thermometer to check your meat at the thickest section.

  • You want to see 145 degrees Fahrenheit or 63 degrees Celsius. 

  • Once you have the correct temperature, more your pork until it is directly over the fire.

  • Your pork chops will have been cooking for about one hour at this point. 

  • Leave the lid open and brown your chops for approximately two minutes per side.

  • Place your pork chops on a platter and get ready for the compliments.
