"The white wine marinade makes these pork chops tender, moist and juicy. Adding hickory chips to your coals just before grilling will add a great hickory smoked flavor."

Hickory wood chips
The only way I've found to prepare pork chops that results in a tender and juicy chop rather than the usual tough and dry chop. The hickory chips boost the flavor even more.
I let these marinate for four hours. We have a gas grill so I added a bit of liquid smoke to the mixture. These came out moist and tender I think more in part the way they were grilled than the marinade. The liquid smoke gave the obvious smoky flavor but not much else was going on here. A nice change of pace, but there are too many other pork marinades on here to do this one again. Sorry.
These were awesome. I changed a few things. Instead of white wine, I used chardonnay because that is all I had. I cut the sage in half, added a little liquid smoke to replace the hickory chips since I didn't have any, and cooked on a propane grill. Very yummy!
I have to say it, that hubs is the grill MASTER and always turns out beautifully grilled and juicy meat, pork chops included--and he never marinates them. So it's not the marinade that makes them tender and juicy! Marinade only penetrates a little more than the surface of the meat. He tried this recipe tonight to indulge my wanting to do something a little different. While he grilled his usual perfectly grilled chops again, neither of us could taste the marinade, but the hickory flavor was distinct and delicious. I don't know that I would bother with the marinade again since it uses ingredients you can't taste anyway and hate to waste.
This recipe was absolutely delicious! I would highly reccomend it!
We have a huge pecan tree in the backyard that we grill with. This was good but something stood out too much. Maybe the wine.
Blah! This tasted like nothing. Well, there was a slight white wine taste but even that was subtle. I admit I used a some liquid smoke instead of hickory chips but I don't think chips would have helped. I even added extra garlic and some green onion but still nothing. Won't make again-oh well; thanks anyway.
This was too bland for us.
Sorry won't be making this again.
