Maple Planked Pork Chops

This delicious yet unique pork chops recipe would be perfect for date night!


2 bone-in pork chops (6-8oz each)
1 maple grilling plank
1/3 c. India Pale Ale
¼ c. maple syrup
¼ c. balsamic vinaigrette 


Soak. Soak Outdoor Gourmet grilling plank in water for one or more hours, the longer the better. Use something heavy to weigh the plank down as it soaks to keep it completely submerged.
Reduce. Make glaze by reducing beer, maple syrup and vinegar on the stovetop until it thickens to half its original volume.
Sear. Preheat grill to 400ºF. Place the pork chops on grill bone down and cook for 3 minutes. Sear the pork chops for 1-2 minutes on all sides.
Grill. Place pork chops on the maple grilling plank and baste with beer and syrup reduction. Close lid (to keep in the flavorful smoke) open only to baste pork chops. Cook for 15 minutes or until the meat reaches the internal temperature of 160ºF.
Enjoy. Let pork rest for three minutes before serving with your favorite accouterments.
