Blackstone Grill Pork Chops

The history of pork chops can be traced back to the domestication of pigs in Europe and Asia. The first domestication of pigs is believed to have taken place in China around 10,000 BC.

A pork chop is a loin cut taken perpendicular to the pig’s spine and is often a rib or portion of a vertebra. Pork chops are less processed and have a higher proportion of lean meat than other cuts. Pork chops are generally served as an individual portion and can be complemented with applesauce, vegetables, and other side dishes.

Notes

What are the best Pork Chops for Blackstone Griddle

SPARE RIB CHOPS
The most flavorful and delicate chops. This part of the pig's flesh is made up of a lot of tiny, softer muscles interspersed with very thin sheets of succulent fat and connective tissue, which means they self-baste. Instead of drying out, they will stay juicy and soft.
LOIN CHOPS
Pork chops are generally long and thin but have a classic shape. They're somewhat dry if overcooked, but they do have some flavor to them. They come with and without the bone, but those with the bone tend to stay moist throughout cooking. Medallions may be cut from the eye of the loin.
CHUMP END STEAKS
A small incision is easy to make, has a lot of distinct tastes, and doesn't require much cooking. To keep the meat juicy during cooking, ask your butcher to leave a thin layer of fat around the "eye" of the steak.
TENDERLOIN (FILLET)
The pig's loin is a very lean cut that may be sliced into tiny, chunky pieces known as noisettes or cut into short chunks and ‘butterflied' (slit open lengthways) before being smashed flat.
LEG
A leg steak can be cut from any part of the leg, but it's most often taken from the fillet. They're extremely lean, so you'll need to cook them carefully to avoid drying them out.
