  • Z Grills 700D3 Wood Pellet Grill
  • Z Grills Apple Wood Pellets
  • instant-read thermometer
  • Tongs
  • Basting brush
  • Silicone Brush


  • Thick Cut Pork Chops (1 inch thick or thicker)
  • Olive Oil
  • Your Favorite BBQ Rub ( I chose the Bearded Butchers Hollywood seasoning)
  • Bachans Japanese BBQ Sauce


  • Dry off the pork chops thoroughly with a paper towel.
  • Coat the pork chops very lightly with olive oil, be sure to coat the entire chop. The purpose of the olive oil is to help the rub stick, as well as help with the sear at the end.
  • Now generously season the pork chops on all sides with your favorite BBQ rub.
  • Set your Z Grills pellet grill to 225F, and place the pork chops in the center of the grill once it is up to temperature. Cook the pork chops until the internal temperature reaches a minimum of 145F. We will be searing these at the end so pull the meat off the grill at 130-135F. Using an instant read thermometer check the internal temperature and remove from the grill about 10-15F prior to desired final temperature.
  • Now crank the grill up to the HIGH setting and let the grill heat up to at least 400F before placing the pork chops back onto the grill. Sear until the internal temperature reaches 145F.
  • Just before we reach that desired final temperature, put a nice coat of Bachans Japanese BBQ sauce on the chops, which gives a nice sweet and savory finish!
  • Once the pork chops reach the desired final temperature remove from the grill and cover with foil for 5-10 minutes. Now it's time to enjoy!
