2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin

- To marinate pork chops: Combine all dry ingredients to make rub. Brush pork chops on all sides with oil, making sure to coat well. Lay out pork chops on a jelly roll type pan and freely apply rub to each side of the chop. Place chops in the refrigerator.
- Meanwhile, make your homemade BBQ sauce. Combine all ingredients, blend with a whisk and allow to stand for 30 minutes before serving. Cover and refrigerate.
- Prepare your grill. When it’s hot, place pork chops on the grill over a medium-high heat. Grill chops approximately three to four minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of your pork chops. Cook until an instant-read thermometer registers 160°F (70°C) when inserted into the thickest part of the chop.
- Serve chops whole or sliced with BBQ sauce on the side.
Makes 8 servings.
