When it comes to a great weekday feast one of my go to cuts is a bone in pork chop and when cooked right they turn out juicy and delicious every time! With that said, in this sweet whiskey butter glazed pork chop recipe we are going to be levelling things up a bit with that whiskey butter which is so good you might just eat it all before it even goes on the chops. For this recipe we are cooking using the Slow ’N Sear Deluxe Kettle Grill so that we can cook indirect until we put the pork chops over the hot coals.
- 2 Thick cut bone in pork chops
- BBQ rub of your choice
- 1/4 Cup butter
- 1/2 Cup brown sugar
- 1/4 Cup whiskey (we used Woodford Reserve)
PREPARATION / COOK
For this recipe, simply apply your sweet BBQ rub onto all sides of the pork chops and then let it sit for about 10-15 while you get your grill set up. To set up the grill for this cook, we filled up the Slow ’N Sear about 2/3 of the way full and then got the coals about half lit so that our grill temperatures stabilized around 275-300F. Once the grill is up to tempreture, place the chops onto the grill opposite the coals and then add in a piece of hard wood for smoky flavour and close the lid to start the cooking process. After about 45 minutes our chops were sitting around 135F which is close to being done. At this point we opened the grill and mixed together our sweet whiskey butter glaze in a cast iron skillet directly over the coals. Once the glaze simmers for a minute or so remove it from the grill to cool slightly. At this point your coals will be roaring hot and time to spin the grate around so that the chops are directly over the hot coals. It’s at this point we will be brushing on the glaze BUT BE CAREFUL AND FLIP OFTEN because the sugars will burn easily if left over the coals for too long. You looking for about 10-15 seconds per flip while brushing on the glaze with each flip - Our total sear time was about 1 minute total. Once the chops are fully cooked, remove them from the heat and let them rest for a few minutes before pouring on your remaining whiskey glaze and enjoying the feast
