Pork chops direct or indirect heat?

I have 2 beautiful pork chops about 1 1/2" thick. I am thinking about 450 deg. and indirect, but I am new. Will someone please give me some advice?

    If ot were me, I would go 400 till internial 135 :)
    But I like mine pink in the middle.
    Good luck and let us know how you did.

    I would do them about 450F or so couple of minutes per side direct, then drop to 350 with the chops off the grill and cook until the way you want them. Careful not to overcook and dry out.
  • Harleydog77,

    Either way works. If they are that thick direct won't dry them out. Just a tip, if you use your platesetter as a barrier for meat, you may want to wrap it in foil.

  • Harleydog, you have mail.
  • What do you mean I have mail?
  • I sent an email to the email account you registered under for this forum.
  • Wow! Thanks for the info! I probably shouldn't have read the whole thing while my egg is burning outside though. Great info. I will use it for sure.
