    I like to go indirect at 250 until done, then add an apricot glaze finish. Apple wood for smoke.
    Or chrispy chops.

    There are dozens of ways to do them well. Some will say to sear hot then cut down the heat and grill until done.
    If it were me, I would just go about 350-400(direct) until proper internal temp. They can get kinda dry do dont overcook.
    You will want some extra flavor in the form of rub or marinade probably. You could just sprinkle with Kosher salt and black pepper. I like them that way but also with a little garlic powder.

    My wife does not eat read meat. Therefore when I do a steak via TRex method, I cook her a pork chop steak using the same TRex method, but more when I am cooling down the EGG between sear and roast.

    Regardless of how you decide to cook them, you might consider preparing them for cooking by flavor brining for 1 hour. I like to cook mine to an internal of 145°, you might like them more done.

    Flavor Brine #1:

    1 quart of water
    3 tablespoons of Morton's kosher salt
    2 tablespoons of sugar

    Seasonings like pepper, garlic powder, sage, lemon slices, onion slices, fresh herbs etc. are optional. A few ounces of flavored vinegar, wine, apple juice or even beer can be added as well.

    More brining details are in the flavor brine page on my site, the link is below.
    Happy Trails

    I won't tell her if you won't, but pork is red meat (in spite of commercials to the contrary) ;)

    I like to buy Costco's thick, boneless chops. I was wondering what Pecan rub might be like on them?

    About how long do they take as you show them? How do you make the apricot glaze? Thanks, Erik
