  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning blend
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 bone-in loin pork chops (8 to 12 oz. each), 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick
  • 1 lemon, quartered lengthwise

Directions

  • Prepare barbecue grill and preheat for direct-heat cooking (the charcoal or gas flame is directly under the food; click here for details).
  • For charcoal grill:
  • Before you put the grill over the hot coals, brush it with a light coat of oil.
  • For gas grill:
  • When hot, brush grill with a light coat of oil.
  • In a small bowl, with your fingers, mix Italian seasoning blend, salt, and pepper to blend well. Rinse pork chops and pat dry.
  • Sprinkle seasoning mixture evenly over both sides of chops and rub into meat.
  • Lay pork on lightly oiled grill over a solid bed of hot coals or high heat on a gas grill (you can hold your hand just above grill level only 2 to 3 seconds).
  • Keep charcoal grill uncovered; close lid on gas grill.
  • Cook, turning once with a wide spatula, until pork is no longer pink in center (cut to test), 10 to 12 minutes total.
  • Transfer chops to plates and serve each with a lemon wedge to squeeze juice over the top.
