Sometimes simple is best. To make the best pork chops, all you need is a grill and salt and pepper. Our kids like to dip theirs in applesauce, but that's about all the additions I allow. NO KETCHUP!!
Summer is too short here in Minnesota, so we pull out our grill year around! Here is my husband's technique for a juicy tender chop.
Take pork chops out of fridge 30 minutes before grilling. After they warm up a bit, rub pork chops generously with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper on both sides.
Heat grill on high to 400 F. Turn burners to low, and immediately place chops on the grill. Sear them on that side for 3-4 minutes. Flip, and then continue to flip and check for doneness. You want light pink juices, and for it to be a slightly tender. Should take 12-15 minutes but if not sure, cut into one to check for color.
