How Long To Grill Pork Chops and the Temp?
I am sure many of you are wondering about “How to grill pork chops?” Here are all the cook’s tips:
- Use center-cut bone-in pork chops, about 1-inch thick.
- Fire up your gas grill or charcoal grill, make sure that you grill the chops on the hottest part of your grill.
- Move the chops away if the fire flares up.
- Grill each side of the pork chop for about 3-4 minutes, or until the surface is nicely charred but not burnt. Turn to the other side and grill for another 3-4 minutes.
- To check doneness, insert the tip of a digital meat thermometer into the thickest part of the pork chop. It should be properly cooked when the internal temperature reaches 145°F.
- Remove the pork chops from the grill and let sit for about 5 minutes before serving. This will seal in all the juiciness inside the pork.
