This is the recipe from the now closed Ember's Restaurant in Mt. Pleasant, MI. My wife's uncle owned it, Clarence Tuma. Have not made them on the egg yet, want to soon.

  • Interesting recipe. This really has the bejesus cooked out of it so I'm thinking it is either a very old recipe, when pork chops were extremely fatty or maybe a butt/shoulder/sirloin chop. With the tight cover it almost like a braise in a DO. 

    Bet you could use the marinade with any pork cut including the more popular and lean tenderloin or loin. Indirect cook the marinated pork on the egg until an internal of 125ºF or so, then slather on the red sauce and let it glaze through the finish of <150º. 

    Thanks for sharing.

    Otter I just saw this. My wife and I loved the Embers. We went a number of times with a priest friend of ours who was at a parish in Mt.P for a few years Those pork chops were OUT OF THIS WORLD tender. Made them at home once or twice.But you can't beat the original.
    Was his son's name Jeff if I recall.
