Grilled Bone-In Pork Chops with Herb Rub

I love to make these Grilled Bone-In Pork Chops with Herb Rub because they are super easy to make, quick to make, and can be adjusted easily since pork takes so well to additives and different seasonings.

I’ve kept this recipe very simple so you can adjust it to your liking. The herb rub is perfect for all seasons really but I love it in the summer for a fresh taste. Throw this on the grill at your next summer BBQ without the heavy sauce.

You can make this recipe with boneless chops too but you want to watch the time very carefully and use thick-cut chops as these babies cook very quickly.

Grilled Herb-Rubbed Bone-In Pork Chops

Grilling pork chops is an entirely different experience than grilling red meat. While steaks can be charred on the outside and a delicious shade of pink or red inside, pork needs to be cooked uniformly throughout. Use a medium direct heat while grilling pork to achieve these results.

  • 2 tbsp sea salt
  • 6-8 large fresh basil leaves torn into pieces
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary leaves only, crushed
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme leaves crushed
  • 3 large cloves garlic smashed, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp black Hawaiian salt
  • Olive oil or non-stick cooking spray for grill
  • 4 thick-cut bone-in pork chops approximately 1” thick


  • Combine sea salt, basil, rosemary, thyme, smashed garlic, and Hawaiian black salt in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Set aside.
  • Scrub grill grates with a wire brush and coat lightly with oil or non-stick cooking spray. Pre-heat grill to medium.
  • Rub herb mixture over all sides of pork chops until coated. Place on the pre-heated grill and cook for 7-8 minutes, turning once halfway through. Keep the grill lid closed while cooking.
  • Remove chops from grill and brush off any remaining large chunks of the herb rub. Cover loosely and rest for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!


Note: If your chops are thinner or thicker than 1-inch thick, adjust cook time accordingly.
