  1. In a small bowl, combine the ground black pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, paprika, brown sugar and chili powder. Mix well and rub thoroughly over the pork chops. Cover the meat and refrigerate for 24 hours, taking meat out at least 30 to 45 minutes before grilling.
  2. Prepare an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the yellow mustard, horseradish mustard, brown mustard, horseradish and brown sugar. Mix well. Place the honey in a separate small bowl.
  4. Then, continue to grill over medium high heat, turning and basting every 10 minutes with the mustard sauce, for 45 to 50 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). During the last 15 minutes of cooking, start basting with the honey, turning as needed. This will give the chops a nice, sweet coating, sealing in the flavors of the mustard baste.

This is REALLY good but very spicey. Not for the kids or sensitive taste buds.

Ok, I can't even begin to imagine how spicy these would have been had I followed the recipe exactly. I cut the spice down by at least half if not more and they still had kick. I also just mixed all the ingredients together and let them marinade overnight. There is another recipe on this site for honey mustard pork chops that I prefer, so I doubt I'll be making this one again. Sorry just way too much spice for us.

Excellent tasting and incredibly juicy. Have made this numerous times since. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

Yum. These have become a summer standard at our house. I don't put quite as much spice on the chops as the recipe calls for. In fact, I just mix up a batch of the rub and keep it in jar in my pantry so I always have some on hand. Also, I just use whatever mustards I have on hand, but the honey and horseradish are a must.

I make these chops all the time..yummy. However I only use 3 tablespoons on black pepper to cut back on the spiciness of this dish. I also cook them in the oven in foil so they come out juicy and tender.

I just made the basting portion of the recipe. Didn't have time to marinate. Very good! Just put evoo, salt/pepper grilled for 10 min. turned and basted with sauce. Then repeated. Turned out great.

Delicious! I was out of cayenne, but I followed the rub ingredients exactly besides that. I put it all in a bag like Shake N Bake to make the cleanup process a little easier. The brown sugar in the rub made the chops brown quickly - I'd probably use a little less next time. I waited to baste the chops with the honey the last few minutes so they wouldn't burn. Very tasty!

These were simply awesome. There is no doubt I will be making these again. Despite what others said I kept the ingredients as indicated in the recipe and the chops were not too spicy for us or my children. They loved them...but I must admit my kids love spicy foods (smile). I did adjust the recipe just a little bit, I didn't have horseradish mustard on hand so I omitted it and I used spicy brown mustard instead of regular brown mustard. I also added Honey Champagne Mustard and this gave the mustard mix a nice sweet flavor. These are awesome chops!
