- Place Chops in sealable bag and cover with Wishbone Italian Dressing. Place in fridge and marinate for at least 1hr or overnight for best results.
- Combine all dry seasonings in boil and mix in olive oil until it almost becomes pasty. Set aside to let flavors marry together.
- Arrange Coals on Weber grill for Indirect cooking. Light Grill and allow to preheat to a medium-high heat (I usually shoot for about 350-375F).
- Remove Chops from marinade and place on Indirect side of grill. Make sure chops are spaced evenly enough for air flow. Grill with lid closed approx. 12-15 Minutes.
- Open lid and baste BOTH sides of chops liberally with dry rub-olive oil mixture. Flip and grill lid closed for an additional 10 minutes.
- Open lid, turn and baste again both sides. Grill over direct heat side of grill for 5 minutes each side with lid open, being careful to avoid flareups.
- Remove from grill and allow to rest for 10 minutes to allow juices to set.
- Serve with your favorite starch and veggie for an awesome dinner!!!
There really is no backstory here folks. I was just searching for a combination of things that made an awesome pork chop and I'm pretty sure I succeeded. Juicy center Cut Chops are grilled to perfection on the Weber Kettle Grill that's been in my posession for 25 years. Marinated in a bold Italian Dressing, then basted with a sweet, savory and spicy herbed oil mop, these bad boys explode with layers of flavor.
