Grilled BBQ Hawaiin Pork Chops

Don't let the "messy" or the "sticky" fool you. These are worth every juicy bite!

6 to 10 half inch cut Smithfield Bone In Pork Chops (Smithfield because they are the best.)
1 Quart of your favorite BBQ Sauce (I reccomend Stubs bold and spicy, Thanks Ben!
1 Can of Dole Sliced Pineapple Rings
1 Red Apple
1 Sweet Yellow Onion
1/2 Cup Salt
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Tsp Granulated Garlic
1 Tsp Black Pepper
1 Bay Leaf
Cold Water


  1. Place Boneless Pork Chops in a bowl or dish deep enough to have at least 1/2 of water over the tops of the chops.
  2. Slice both the apple and onion with skin on uinto quarters and add to bowl.
  3. Add Salt, Sugar, Granulated Garlic, Black Pepper, and Bayleaf evenly over the bowl.
  4. Poor enough water over the chops, and seasoning to cover the stack by a half inch
  5. Using your clean hand or a spoon mix together the mixture and chops. You just made a brine
  6. Cover bowl with plastic wrap thoroughly almost as air tight as you can get it
  7. Place the brine in teh refrigerator a minimum of 6 hours. (I let my sit over night)
  8. When your ready to cook take the chops out and drain on paper towels for about 1 min.
  9. Prep BBQ Sauce and Pinapples for grilling
  10. With Grill on High or 'HOT" Grill Pork Chops without Sauce for 1 minute on each side
  11. Slather Chops with BBQ Sauce and Flip cook for 1 minute.
  12. Flip Chops and Repeat step 11 a 5 times.
  13. Place Pineapple Rings on Grill to get a little char for 45 secs.
  14. Remove Chops to tray and Place freshly grilled pineapple rings on top.

I like to serve these with rice and grilled corn, DELICIOUS!
