The wife picked up a few rather thin pork chops, and I'd like to cook them on the kamado tonight. Should I cook direct or slow cook? Any good marinades or spices?[p]Love to hear from you guys on favorite recipes. Thanks!!

    You stated really thin pork chops, the best kind. Temp 400-450 salt, pepper, evoo, a little cayann and worchestshire sauce. Place on grill cook about 10 min. flip cook another 5 to 10 min. a side of baked potato, rice, and garden salad, should be great.

    Cook direct at about 450 ... if you have any Dizzy Pig... mix equal parts Dizzy Dust and Raging River.

    CyberDawg,[p]I don't have the recipe at my fingertips, but there is an awesome glaze that I use frequently that was published in "The Thrill of the Grill". You probably don't have the ingredients at hand. I'll try to approximate it from memory:[p]1/2 C white vinegar
    1/4 C sugar[p]Bring vinegar to slow boil and dissolve sugar (about 5 minutes)[p]Add:
    1 cup Tangerine Juice (you can substitute fresh orange juice)[p]Reduce to 1/2 volume (~10 minutes) - it will thicken slightly so that it coat the back of a spoon.[p]Add:
    2 Tsp Lime Juice
    2 Tbsp Butter
    The needles of 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary[p]Heat a couple of minutes and spoon over cooked pork chops. Everyone I've served it to end up dipping vegetables, potatoes, and/or rice into the glaze - it's that good.

    if they are thin with the bone i honestly like them breaded and pan fried better. if boneless you could go this route, also good with canned chilis and cheeses done this way.

    <p />CyberDawg,
    Sounds like breaskfast chops which require hot and fast. Nice idea what Good Eats does, maybe let set in EVOO for an hour, with rub, before grilling. Get thick cut bone-in next time. Doesn't get any better. Just took some out of the freezer since you mentioned pork chops.[p]Mike
