Grilled Bourbon Chops Recipe

Grilled Bourbon Chops Recipe

My husband is a grill master and loves a good bourbon, making this recipe the perfect combination of both! Sometimes we use thicker chops. If you do, too, remember to cook them long enough to reach 145. —Donna Bryan, Columbia Falls, Montana
