This week I’m taking a look at BBQ pork chops – cooked both indoors and outdoors. I’m talking about how to cook your pork properly, so that you don’t end up with a slab of sawdust.

See how we made the sauce on Bon Appetit:

    BTW…thanks for the suggestion of using an internal meat thermometer. That's probably the reason why in the past my pork was so-so. I over cooked them.
