"Hurricane Sandy is making landfall in Atlantic City today and, not knowing if I would have electricity, I wanted a quick meal to prepare. This was a great choice. It was easy and very good. The next time I make this I will take Ken's suggestion and drain off the fat before adding the sauce to the pan. The sauce was tasty and it didn't cover up the flavor of the pork. I will definitely make this again."

"Meh. I used boneless instead of bone-in. They took much longer to cook through than the recipe called for. The end result wasn't very tender and the barbecue sauce wasn't our favorite. A little bland and sweet."

"Made these last night, easy to fix and everybody loved it. Used boneless chops instead of boned in. After browning chops, I drained excess oil. Chops come out very juicy and tender. Will be making these often. Ken from Amarillo, Texas"

"This recipe came in my email two evenings ago. I tried it last evening and I loved the sauce-tangy and sweet and so easy to prepare. Now I have something new to share when my son and his wife come by from out-of-town. Lois from Lewiston, Idaho."
