Juicy, flavorful and delicious, these dry rubbed grilled pork chops are perfect for a weekend barbecue or a quick weeknight dinner.  Dry Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops on wooden plates

I know I’ve said this before, but pork meat is a little under appreciated at times.

I cook it often and my family likes it, so today I decided to share with you my recipe for Dry Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops.

This dry rub is pretty simple to prepare, with spices you already have in your pantry.

What I like about it is that is seasons the meat quickly (no need to marinate it for several hours), it isn’t messy and keeps the pork chops juicy.

Dry Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops for summer and grilling season

This summer has been pretty good for me.

Weather is nice, the humidity hasn’t been extremely high around here, which means that I spend a lot of time outdoors.

And of course, I practice my favorite activity – grilling!

I enjoy using my grill and I never struggle with dinner recipe ideas in the summer.

Everything is so quick and easy to make, unlike the colder months, when I need to pull out the slow cooker or wait for my dinner to cook for hours in the oven.

  1. I made both the pork chops and the spinach salad and both were excellent!  Both the rub and salad were easy to put together and the salad was delicious and a perfect pairing with the pork. The family loved the meal and there were no leftovers!  I will definitely make this meal again.

  2. These were the best pork chops we have ever made. Bone in chops are key I think. This will definitely be added to the regular rotation. The only thing I changed was decreasing salt from 1 tablespoon to 1 teaspoon. It was plenty salty for us!
