Four 1 1/2-inch thick center cut bone in pork chops

Neely's Seasoning Salt, recipe follows

Sweet and Tangy Glaze, recipe follows

Seasoning Salt:

2 tablespoons kosher salt

1 tablespoon onion powder

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon celery seed

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika

Sweet and Tangy Glaze:

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup tablespoon real maple syrup

2 tablespoons ketchup

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1 dash Worcestershire sauce

1 dash hot pepper sauce (recommended: Tabasco)

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Season the pork chops lightly on both sides with the Seasoning Salt. Remember, we aren't rubbing the chops.
  3. Grill the chops for 5 to 7 minutes per side. Brush them with the Sweet and Tangy Glaze the last 5 minutes of grilling. Internal temperature should register 145 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Remove the chops from the grill to a serving platter and allow them to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Seasoning Salt:

  1. Mix the salt, onion powder, black pepper, garlic powder, celery seed, cayenne, and smoked paprika in a small bowl. Reserve a small amount for another use.
  2. You can store the remaining Seasoning Salt in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

Sweet and Tangy Glaze:

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire, and hot sauce. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and refrigerate if not using immediately.
