Fire up the grill and dinner is ready in less than 15 minutes with pork chops that are finished with a sweet-hot glaze.


  • 4 pork chops, 3/4-1-inch thick
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 6 Tbs honey
  • 2 Tbs hot pepper sauce


  • Prepare medium-hot fire in kettle-style grill. In small bowl stir together honey and hot pepper sauce.
