What You’ll Need for Cedar Plank Pork Chops

  1. Cedar Plank

Check for untreated cedar planks at stores selling BBQ tools and supplies.

  1. Boneless Pork Chops

1 pound of boneless pork loin, cut in the center. Season the cuts with pepper and sa. Some people prefer thinner cut chops, but if you’re a fan of thicker chops, you can go with them. However, make sure to add extra cooking time. Also, use a meat thermometer to monitor the internal temperature. lt

  1. Apple Cider Vinegar Sauce

This sauce adds a beautiful tangy flavor that pairs very well with the pork. You can pour some on top of the chops before serving.  

  • 1/2 cup of chicken stock
  • 1/4 teaspoon of granulated sugar. You can use brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Steps for Juicy Plank Pork on Your Pit Boss Gill

Step 1: Fill up a large bowl or baking dish halfway with warm water. Place the cedar planks in the bowl and soak for at least 1-2 hours.

Step 2: Mix the sugar, parsley, chicken stock and vinegar in a pot. Let it boil and then reduce the heat. Allow it to sit for 10 minutes or until half of the broth is gone.

Step 3: As the sauce simmers, preheat your grill to high heat. When the sauce is done, add the butter and mix stir until it’s completely melted. The sauce should be kept on low heat.

Step 4: Set the cedar planks on the grill, but allow some space to cook the pork chops. Put the pork chops directly on the grill and allow them to cook on one side for 1-2 minutes. Turn over and sear them on the other side for a minute or two.

Step 5: Remove the chops and set them on the cedar planks, close the lid, and cook for 8-10 minutes. The internal temperature should be at least 150 degrees before taking it down.

Step 6: Transfer the chops to a plate and let them rest
