  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon ancho chilli powder

  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.

  3. Combine remaining ingredients. Take the pork out of the 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.
