Yummy Pork Chops ala The Big Steel Keg!
Last Summer, Tom, my dear sweet hubby, purchased The Big Steel Keg via Ace Hardware. He recently started using it to serve up the BEST pork chops ever!
Thankfully, he took the time to take photos while preparing and cooking today's batch.
Here are his instructions, fully illustrated for you.
Step 1: Fire up The Big Steel Keg until the temperature reaches 800 degrees.
Step 2: Tom buys 2" thick pork loins, center cut, bone in to make these luscious yummies. He removes them from the refrigerator and allows them to reach room temperature. He recommends seasoning them with your favorite concoctions. He prefers Tony Chachere's, and covers them well on all sides.
Step 3: Place the chops, bone side down on the grill and cook in that position for 8-10 minutes, finishing them off with a little over minute on each side.
Step 4: Once the cooking on the BSK is completed, he wraps the chops in a large piece of heavy duty foil, places the foil-wrapped chops on a platter, and covers them with several towels. 15-20 minutes of "resting" allows the chops to continue to "cook on their own".
Step 5: Uncover the most awesome, tender, and juicy chops and serve!
Thanks, Tom, for sharing this method with everyone!
