Ingredients

Units Scale

Alabama White BBQ Sauce

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce

Grilled Pork Chops

  • 6 thick cut bone in pork chops
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the grill to medium high heat or approximately 375˚. 
  2. While the grill is preheating, combine all of the ingredients for the bbq sauce in a bowl and whisk thoroughly to combine. Set aside.
  3. Brush both sides of pork chops with vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Cook pork chops on the preheated grill for 4-6 minutes on each side until the internal temperature reaches a minimum of 145˚ when checked with a kitchen thermometer. The actual thickness of the pork chops may vary cooking times.
  5. Remove pork chops from the grill and allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving with the bbq sauce.

Notes

  • Use bone in pork chops for the most tender and juicy pork chop. Boneless pork chops or thinner cuts may be used, however cooking times will be shorter. 
  • Use a kitchen thermometer to check your meat when grilling. This will help to ensure you don't overcook your pork chops and become dry. Pork should be cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 145˚.
  • Bring your pork chops to room temperature before grilling. It will help to make sure they are evenly cooked and don't burn on the outside.

Variations

  • Traditional BBQ - Not a fan of Alabama white sauce? Slather these pork chops in your favorite traditional barbecue sauce the last couple of minutes of cooking on the grill.
  • Spicy - A one Tablespoon of hot sauce to your alabama white sauce instead of a teaspoon for a spicier white bbq sauce.

Alternative Cooking Methods

If cooking outside on the grill is not an option, these pork chops can be cooked inside on a grill pan or in a cast iron skillet. Preheat the pan on the stovetop on medium high heat and cook for 6-8 minutes on each side until cooked to an internal temperature of 145˚.
