There’s nothing quite like food cooked on the grill.  I’m fortunate enough that my gas grill is located right outside my back door which means in the warmer months of the year, I use it in some way or another almost every day.  Tonight’s menu includes marinated bone-in pork chops.  I’ve been using this delicious combination of flavors to marinate beef, chicken or pork for years.  The meat always turns out juicy and packed with flavor!
