Pork Chops
1/2 Smithfield Boneless Loin, cut into 4 chops
2-3 tbl Big Poppa's Sweet Money Championship Rub
2 can 20oz Dole Pineapple chunks in juice, drained, with 1/3 cup juice set aside
1 lb Smithfield Bacon, cut into small pieces
1/2 Sweet white onion, diced
1 pat Salted butter
3-4 tbl Granny's BBQ Sauce


Preheat grill to 350F, indirect heat (you will be adjusting for direct heat later)

Season both sides of chops with Sweet Money Rub

Put the chops on the indirect side of the grill, checking internal temperature after 10 minutes

Flip at an internal temp of 100F - cook for another 10 minutes

While the chops are cooking, prepare your pineapple bacon hash

Fry bacon pieces until crispy, set aside to drain on paper towels

Pour majority of bacon grease out of pan, then add pineapple chunks and sweet onion back into pan - add a pat of butter season lightly with Sweet Money - cook until caramelized

When caramelized, add bacon back into pan, along with 1/3 cup of reserved pineapple juice

Drizzle Granny's BBQ Sauce over hash, cook to reduce liquids

Remove hash from pan, and add Tabasco to taste, set aside

Check internal temps on pork chops, remove at internal temp of 130F and set aside, then increase the heat on your grill for direct fire cooking

Once direct heat for searing is ready, sear the chops on both sides until there are grill marks and internal temps are 145F

Remove chops from grill, let rest a few minutes, top with hash, and serve!
