I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Classic BBQ Pork Chops

This classic sweet rub brings out the best in these barbecued pork chops. We used 3/4" thick to ensure a juicy chop. Those thin ones tend to dry out.


2 - 3/4 - 1" thick pork chops

2 tbsps olive oil

1 tbsp brown sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp smoked paprika

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

zest of 1/2 lemon


Pat dry then brush 1 tbsp olive oil on each chop. Combine the brown sugar, salt, pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder and onion powder together and rub into both sides of each pork chop. Sprinkle with lemon zest. Refrigerate for a couple of hours or up to 24 hours for the flavours to really permeate the meat.

When ready heat the barbecue to 400°F or medium high. Grill the pork for 7-10 minutes per side with the grill lid closed until the internal temperature reads 145°F. Hubby used his handy dandy BBQ light to spotlight his work!

Let the chops rest for 5 minutes before digging in!

Serves 2
