Pork chops are great on the grill but if you're not careful they can easily be overcooked and dry out like an old boot.

Maybe that's your thing, but if not then here's a couple tricks to grilling the perfect chops.

First, I've found you want to start with chops 1" thick with the bone-in and the best way to get what you want is to make your own. Buy a small pork rib roast (sometimes they "french" the roast by removing the excess fat from the bones) with at least 4 bones and slice the roast, between the bones, to make your own chops.

Second trick to perfect chops is to stuff them with something that will add a little moisture from the inside out.

This recipe stuffs the chops with smoked gouda cheese (or other smoky cheese of choice), some smoked ham slices and a little basil pesto.

Easy to make, easy to grill and juicy and delicious everytime.

1. Slice the roast between the ribs to make four 1" chops.

2. Lay a chop flat and carefully cut a pocket into the chop (don't cut all the way through!). Repeat with remaining chops.

3. Place 1 slice of ham into the pocket, add the basil pesto, add the cheese and then place the 2nd slice of ham in the pocket so it partially wraps over and under the other ingredients making a seal to keep the cheese from oozing out while cooking.

4. Sew a toothpick into the chop to close the opening. Cover both sides with 1 Tbl olive oil and 1 tsp black pepper.

5. Grill over direct heat at 400F - 450F for approx. 15 minutes, flipping only once mid-way through cooking (after 8 minutes). When the internal temperature of the meat (not the stuffing) reaches 150F remove the chops from the grill and cover with aluminum foil for 5 minutes before serving.
