These Peach Barbecue Pork Chops are a quick and easy summer recipe perfect for any BBQ or gathering!
I love the summer months because it means that barbecuing is in full effect (mainly for my husband, haha)! There are so many different recipes that you can try on the grill or if you prefer in your grill pan. One of my goals this summer is to try to fire up the grill more and I’m pretty excited about it. If you’re in the mood for something savory with a touch of sweetness then these Peach Barbecue Pork Chops have your name written all over them!
WHAT TEMPERATURE SHOULD PORK BE COOKED TO?
Pork should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees F. Cooking the meat to this temperature will ensure that the meat is safe to eat while keeping the pork moist and tender. The best way to gauge whether your pork is done is to use a thermometer. (If you don’t own a cooking thermometer please invest in one, it’s a kitchen staple). Insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the meat for the most accurate reading.
SHOULD I USE BONE IN OR BONELESS PORK CHOPS?
I prefer bone in pork chops because they’re less likely to dry out on the grill and they taste amazing!
