“I LUV bbq, but there are times when the weather here in WI doesn't want to co-operate & I can't grill or bbq outdoors. I came up with this on one of those "uncooperative" days. Turned out pretty good!!! Hope you try & like it, too!!! PLEEZ choose chops that have some fat on them...rib chops, preferred. I'll argue this with anyone, cuz fat adds flavor & helps keep the meat moist. NOTE: Cooking time does NOT include marinade time”
2hrs 55mins
6 chops

Ingredients Nutrition
