  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt, plus 1 teaspoon (separated)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 2 cups peach preserves
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced

  4. In a medium saucepan, combine the preserves, vinegar, bourbon, garlic, dry mustard, red pepper flakes, and a teaspoon of salt.
  5. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, stirring frequently to avoid the bottom burning.
  6. Cook until the sauce thickens, about 10 minutes.
  7. Let the sauce cool completely
  8. Remove the pork chops from the refrigerator 30 mins before grilling to allow it to come to room temperature.
  9. Preheat your grill (or grill pan) to medium.
  10. Place the pork chops on the grill, cover and cook until lightly marked, about 4 minutes.
  11. Turn the pork chops over and baste the cooked side with the sauce.
  12. Cover and cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes.
  13. Uncover and continue to cook, turn, and baste the chops every couple of minutes until done.
  14. Pork is done when it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees.
  15. Transfer to a plate or cutting board and allow the meat to rest for 5 minutes.
  16. Meanwhile, place the peaches cut-side down on the grill.
  17. Cover and grill 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until grill marks appear.
  18. Serve the pork chops with the grilled peaches.
