Easy and delicious, pure maple syrup adds the perfect complement to this smoky favorite.

Cooking for 4 people


  • 4 1 to 1¼-inch-thick bone-in pork chops
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil, plus more for greasing the grates
  • 0.3 cup pure maple syrup
  • minced chives, for garnish


  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1.5 tsp. kosher salt
  • 0.5 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1 Food Prep

  • First, in a small bowl, mix together the spices.

  • Finally, mince the chives for the garnish.

3 The Cook

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.

  • Place the chops on the grill and cook for 6–7 minutes.

  • Flip the chops and baste with the maple syrup. Cook for 6–7 minutes more, or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F on a digital meat thermometer, basting occasionally.

  • Let the chops rest for at least 5 minutes.
  • Serve, garnished with the minced chives.

For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Party for your Taste Buds First, you have everything in your pantry to make these tonight. Except the pork chops. Those need to be in the fridge. And second, when you put this all together and grill? It is so good! We made garlic mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus with it. It didn't take that long for the pork chops to be done and dinner was finished! You are going to love these!
