Smokey Mesquite Pork Chops

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by April 7

This recipe was on the Durkee Grill Creations Smokey Mesquite bottle. I shop at Sam's Club and they had samples and they were so good that I had to get everything to make these. It is not on the bottle that I got the last time so I thought I would post it here. I have never used the bourbon which is optional. I also use the bone in pork chops sometimes. I have just sprinkled the seasoning over before frying and they turn out great. I have added the marinate time to the prep time. Enjoy! They recipe calls for Durkee grill creations seasoning not powder but it keeps coming up as powder.

It doesn't get any easier than this recipe. The flavor is a wonderful blend of citrus, BBQ, and a touch of sweetness. It is also economical for us, because these are ingredients I usually have on hand. I left out the alcohol and used bone-in chops. I used a different brand of mesquite seasoning, too. Everyone enjoyed them! Thanks for posting.
