  • 4 thick cut pork rib chops
  • 1 cup salt
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 2 cups apple cider vinegar, heated
  • 2 pounds ice
  • 2 tablespoons black peppercorns, cracked
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 10 sprigs fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon ancho chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic


  1. Combine honey, salt, vinegar, herbs, cayenne pepper, and minced garlic in a plastic zip-top bag. Add ice and shake the bag until ice is mostly melted and mixture has cooled down.
  2. Insert pork chops and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients. Take pork out of mixture and pat dry with paper towels. Discard remaining mixture.
  4. Rub spice mixture on both sides of each pork chop.
  5. Quickly lube a high grill with a flame-resistant towel soaked in oil and tied with twine.[note 1]
  6. Grill pork chops, covered, 2 minutes. Twist 90 degrees and cook for another 2 minutes. Flip and repeat one more time.
  7. Move to a plate and let rest, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Serve warm.


  1. Don't use so much oil that it bursts into flames and you end up in the burn ward.
