Grilled Boneless Pork Chops Shopping List:
Head to Walmart to pick up Smithfield All Natural Pork. These are part of the line of NEW Smithfield All Natural Fresh Pork Guaranteed Tender now available. This means that Smithfield hand-selects high quality cuts of meat based on coloring and marbling as part of a USDA verified process.
When you are shopping for pork, always look for pale pink flesh that’s firm to the touch. A little marbling (fat) means you’ll have a tasty cut with good natural flavor.

Pineapple Bourbon BBQ Sauce
Ok, we need to talk about this BBQ sauce for a minute. To get the most flavor out of your pork chops, make this tasty Pineapple Bourbon BBQ Sauce. It’s thick and bold but not overpowering, so it is a perfect match for the pork!
Here’s my pro tip – make this sauce on the weekend when you have a little more time. It takes about 30-40 minutes start to finish. While you wait for the sauce to simmer, cut up the pineapple, and chop your green peppers and red onions for the kabobs. Store the pineapple in air-tight container by itself. The peppers and onions can be combined in their own container. The BBQ sauce can be stored in a mason jar with a lid. Refrigerate everything until serving day.
If you prefer, you can use a similarly flavored store-bought BBQ sauce. However, this pineapple bourbon sauce is so good, you can literally eat it from the jar with a spoon…
I mean, not that I’ve done that… ahem.

How to Grill Boneless Pork Chops
- Season with salt and pepper, then slather each side of the pork with BBQ sauce.
- Grill over medium heat 3-4 minutes per side. If the chop does not easily release from the grill, allow it to cook another 30-60 seconds and check again.
- When the internal temp reaches 145-degrees F, remove it from the grill. Let rest 3 minutes before cutting.

What Goes with Grilled Pork Chops?
You can serve grilled pork chops with a salad or corn on the cob. I chose to make these yummy and simple pineapple, pepper, and red onion kabobs. Just thread them on your metal skewers, then brush with a little BBQ sauce. Cook 1-2 minutes per side, then turn until all the sides are cooked.

Can You Eat Pink Pork?
Yes, it is safe to eat pink pork! The National Pork Board recommends cooking pork chops to an internal temperature between 145° F. (medium rare), which will be pink, to 160° F. If you follow this guideline, your pork will be cooked well but not dry. Always allow your pork to rest for 3 minutes so that the juices can redistribute.
