Lemon peel makes the spice mixture perfectly moist to rub on the four thick pork chops in this easy grilling recipe.
For rub, combine the garlic, lemon peel, rosemary, salt, sage, and pepper. Trim fat from meat. Rub mixture onto both sides of each pork chop.
For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around a drip pan in a grill that has a cover. Test for medium heat above pan. Place chops on grill rack directly over the pan. Cover and grill, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in center of a chop registers 160 degrees F and juices run clear (35 to 40 minutes).
For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium and adjust for indirect cooking. Place chops on grill rack; and grill as above. Makes 4 servings.
