Grilled Pork Chops with White BBQ Sauce

Grilled Pork Chops with White BBQ Sauce are rich, smokey and tangy. They make a delicious, quick and easy dinner that’s sure to please.

Today I’m going to share with you one of my favorite dishes that I love grilling up when summer comes around. 

Grilled Pork Chops with White BBQ Sauce

Perfectly juicy and tender pork chops take on all that smokey flavor from the grill and then they’re served with some Alabama White Sauce (also known as White Barbecue Sauce) on the side. 

If you’ve never tried White BBQ Sauce, you’re in for a treat! 

It’s tangy and totally packed with flavors of garlic, horseradish and mustard. 

I use half of the sauce to quick-marinate my pork chops before they go on the grill, then serve the remaining sauce on the side, for drizzling over them when they are served. 

What’s in White BBQ Sauce? 

  • Mayonnaise
  • White Wine Vinegar
  • Brown Mustard
  • Horseradish
  • Garlic
  • Paprika
  • Salt & Pepper 

That’s it! You may even have all these ingredients on hand already. 

Plus, you can whip it up in just a few minutes. Meaning that these grilled pork chops are perfect for weeknight cooking! 

Here’s my game plan for how it all goes down: 

  1. Make the White BBQ Sauce.
  2. Pour half the sauce into a casserole dish or ziploc bag and let your chops marinate while you preheat the grill. 
  3. Once the grill is hot, sear the chops for about 10 minutes per side (or until they reach 145-degrees F). 
  4. Serve with remaining sauce on the side. 
  5. Enjoy! 

How to grill pork chops: 

  • Heat the grill to 450-degrees. 
  • Cook for 10 minutes per side, or until a meat thermometer reads 145-degrees F.
  • Let rest 3-minutes before serving. 

Note: It’s a misconception that pork must be cooked until the juices run clear and the meat is white. This results in overcooked pork!

I love using a digital meat thermometer to check for doneness.The USDA states that pork is safe when cooked to an internal temp of 145-degrees F. It will still be light pink inside. 

I’m using bone-in pork chops for this recipe. But boneless pork chops work as well!

I’d say that these Grilled Pork Chops with White BBQ Sauce make the perfect, easy summer meal. They’re quick to prepare and definitely easy to devour!

Wine pairings for pork chops: 

  • Pork pairs awesomely with Pinot Noir. It’s a light bodied red that doesn’t overpower the flavors, and the bright acidity is a nice match for how savory pork is.
  • Rosé is another great match for these pork chops. Its bright acidity pairs really nicely.
