Loin Chops

1Prepare a hot grill. Lights coals and allow them to get hot enough that you can’t hold you hand four inches above them for more than a few seconds. Bank coals to one side of grill to create a zone of high heat and a zone of indirect heat. For a gas grill, turn to medium high 10 -15 minutes before you plan to grill.

2Just before grilling, sprinkle chops on both sides with sea salt and pepper. Set chops over hottest part of grill and grill 2 minutes. Flip, and grill 2 minutes more. Move chops over indirect heat, and grill 2 – 4 minutes longer or until internal temperature reaches 135°F. Rest chops 5 minutes.
