Finishing the chops!

Ever wanted to cook some delicious meat on the coals?

Most of the time people use steak for this! I decided to switch things up by using pork chops. The idea is the same, but the flavors can be totally different. Firstly, pork is a bit tougher than steak so you must be careful to watch the meat constantly in order for it to cook properly. Once the pork is on the coals, then it is show time!

Secondly, you must make sure the charcoals are white hot when you put the meat on! This is important because it makes sure that nothing sticks to the crust & that everything is clean. Lastly,  make sure you are using a natural lump charcoal like Cowboy Charcoal. These guys are the ideal charcoal to cook on top of!

Caveman Tomahawk Pork Chop Ingredients
