    Smokin' Todd,
    You read my mind, ST! Just headin out to see if I can get local meat shop to cut me some double-thick centre-cut loin chops. Denise's favourite! By co-inky-dink, the Beer Store is right next door. How con-VEEEN-ient! Cheers!

    Smokin' Todd,
    Hey dude; I'm back from the meat shop! Got 2 of those centre cut chops; custom cut, double-thick. They are over 1 lb each; about a lb and a quarter. What cut do you usually get? The butterflied loins always look so nice, but are just too lean and butt chops are just that; slices of butt--too much fat to meat ratio. Just wondering; people talk about doing chops, but there are so many cuts marketed... I like these centre cuts, cuz the bulk of it is nice, and then you hit that medallion of tenderloin on the one side of the T-bone and 'Oh man! pork chop heaven Bay-beee!!' (my best **** Vitale impersonation for NB, whose Turtles are still chuggin along in the Tourney!)

    BBQfan1,[p]I also like the thick cut center loin chops. This one supermarket near me usually has some big thick nice looking ones. I like to season with kosher salt, black pepper, and rosemary, and then grill at high heat. I like to serve with Q sauce on the side, but I often don't use it if I've cooked my chops right (ie - they're tender, moist, and sitting in their own delicious juices!).[p]Now that I've just raved about pork chops, I'll admit that my dinner tonight will most likely consist of a tuna sandwich with a cup of noodles on the side (with lots of tabasco sauce, of course). I've been working way too much this week and haven't had a second to shop. I know that's about all I have at my apt right now and I'm definitely not stopping on the way home (I will go from work to couch at light speed and not look back). I may spice things up with a beer or two, or at least a few drinks of the Blue scotch, though...[p]Hee,

    Cornfed, You mean to tell me that your NEIGHBOUR, ST, is not going to share the booty?! I simply assumed this was a joint-venture, this pork chop roasting endeavour... Todd, c'mon dude, go over and extend an olive branch of friendship to your pal Mr. Cornfed! (prefereably with a 1lb hunk of roast pork skewered to said olive twig).
