Reviews for Grilled Bourbon Chops
"I had high expectations for this recipe but I must say they fell short. Made as directed except used thicker chops. The flavor was good and nothing to complain about but I have much better, more flavorful chop recipes."
"We had these chops based on MarineMom's review on FB. Yum! We, too used thicker bone-in chops. The sauce is delicious! We will definitely enjoy this recipe again and again!"
"I prepared these chops tonight. I followed the recipe using bourbon but did use thicker boned chops. Hubby loved the chops but he likes bourbon. I am not fond of bourbon so I would have preferred the apple juice. The recipe was delicious and so easy to prepare. Next time I may try the apple juice. Hubby cleaned his plate. I recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor."
