Grilled Herb Rubbed Bone In Pork Chops! Oh boy, can you almost smell those babies on the grill when you read that name. I can.

BBQ Season means lots of meat will be smoking up the neighborhood on our grill. Grilled pork chops are a favorite around here for multiple reasons.

Herb Rubbed Bone-In Grilled Pork Chops make the perfect summer meal for weeknights, weekends of special occasions. #porkchops #grilledchops #SummerBBQ #grillrecipe #intellid

Pork Chops are done very quickly so no long wait for your tummy! They offer a completely different flavor profile from beef, a nice welcome change.

I like them served with fruity side dishes or even the same side we serve with beef for summer grilling like grilled fresh veggies! You can use so many different seasoning methods too! Pork chops are versatile!

Grow your own fresh herbs for cooking


Each fresh grown Herb has it’s own health benefit. Some of them overlap which is wonderful. A few of the most common health benefits of cooking with fresh herbs are:

  • Antioxidants that are believed to help protect against diseases such as heart disease and cancer
  • Good natural source of vitamins
  • Allows you to cut back on salt without sacrificing flavor
  • Anti-microbial so they help protect us from harmful bacteria
  • Some are a natural anti-inflammatory

This recipe for Grilled Herb Rubbed Pork Chops uses Thyme, Basil and and Rosemary which you can easily grow in containers at home.

See Our Distressed Clay Pots I made to grow Basil and Cilantro a few years back.

Pork chops need to get completely done on the inside unlike beef which can be served with a nice pink center. Make sure you use a meat thermometer and get your pork up to 145°.


You will blend your herbs and seasonings together. Using a mortar and pestle makes this process easier but if you don’t yet have one, try this trick.

Chop the herbs together then place them inside of a Ziploc bag. Now use a rolling pin to crush them together.
