Great for fall grillin'! Great sides are baked apples,scalloped broccoli or grilled asparagus.The apple juice really does something amazing to the tenderness and moisture of the meat it is UNBELIEVABLE!!!

  • 2* combine all dry ing. and garlic rub an both sides of chops and dust with pepper
  • 3* place chops in apple juice for at least 4 hrs
  • 4* I pull chops out place on a plate and let sit for 8 minutes on each side to allow grilling to be more even, this is safe and has NEVER been a problem. If you are concerned simply skip this step :) Grill over med low heat for 6-7 min per side until juices run clear
