The grilling season is finally here and I am excited to share one of my favorite recipes, lemon soaked BBQ pork chops.

BBQ Pork Chops

I love when my husband cooks on the grill! Not only does it give me a night off from cooking but it always tastes amazing and he looks good doing it! This past weekend we were lucky enough to get together with some of our family and serve up a tasty recipe for the most delicious BBQ Pork Chops I have ever had!

Let me tell you how this deliciousness went down. First we headed to Sam’s Club to pick up our ingredients. While we were there my mom knocked over a kayak, my daughter acted like she ran the show, and the both of them ate as many samples as they could get their hands on.

Meanwhile, my husband and I picked up the thickest pork chops I have ever seen, a couple bottles of Simply LemonadeKC Masterpiece® BBQ Sauce Mix & Dry Rub, and some charcoal.

I was most excited to try out the new product KC Masterpiece® BBQ Sauce Mix & Dry Rub. It’s so new that it hadn’t even made it’s way to the shelf next to the other KC Masterpiece® products yet.

After I got all of my supplies I headed home to start my marinade for our upcoming BBQ with the family. My brother just moved out to Iowa recently so a get together was in order and I wanted to make sure everything was perfect.

I placed all of the pork chops into a glass dish and poured about 2 cups of  Simply Lemonade® into the container. I covered it up and stored it in the refrigerator overnight.

When it was time to light the grill I began the next step in my new favorite recipe, mixing the KC Masterpiece® BBQ Sauce Mix & Dry Rub with Simply Lemonade® to make a sauce.

I grabbed the pork chops out of the refrigerator, drained the excess juice and spread the mixture on top.

Once all of the pork chops were covered, I handed the meat off to my husband and waited for him to grill them to perfection.

These pork chops were the thickest cuts my husband and I had ever seen, so your cooking time will vary depending on thickness, we cooked these for about 25 minutes.

While they were grilling, my family got a chance to talk, goof around, and play a game of football. This is kind of a right of passage for us because whenever my family got together for a Summer BBQ when I was a kid, we always played football. I used to love tackling my sister and anyone else who had the guts to cover me during those games.


Nothing brings a family together like some good food, a game of football, and a chance to battle head to head. This game was a little more calm than the ones I remember from back in the day but fun none the less. The only battle at this get together was going to be who gets the last pork chop. I could see my mom and daughter creeping closer to the grill so I knew the BBQ Pork Chops were almost done.

We flipped them halfway through cooking and after the 25 minutes were up, we all sat down to eat. It was a beautiful day for a bbq and family get together, I can’t wait to do it again.

I served the BBQ Pork Chops with a baked potato and a glass of Gold Peak® Tea. After trying these out I think everyone is wondering when we get to do it again.

  1. Those sound absolutely amazing! Citrus is absolutely the best addition to any type of meat. It adds a great flavor and really tenderizes the meat.

  2. I am so ready to bbq some things when we get our new grill. These look really delicious.

  3. Yummy…the only problem is it seems my invitation must have been lost in the mail.

  4. This looks super delicious! I wouldn’t have thought to use the mix on pork chops, but it does look super delicious!

  5. This looks so good. I was just telling the hubby I’m sick of our hot dog and hamburger theme and I wanted to mix it up this summer on the grill.

  6. I have never seen a recipe to use lemonade with pork chops but I’m thinking it would be fun to try this summer! You gotta love how a bbq will bring the family together.

  7. I’ve never heard of marinating meat with lemon juice or lemonade! We usually just marinate it with olive oil and spices but I am willing to try this because I love lemon!

  8. Yummy, these sound delicious. I will have to try this with chicken. I usually sprinkle a bit of garlic salt and pan fry pork chops in butter. They are mouth watering too.

  9. That looks so delicious! I must try this out. I still need to get a grill! I love grilling out! I usually head over to my fathers when I want to grill and use his. I’ll have to do this the next time I head to his house. Sounds so good!
