Grilled Pork Chops with Apple-Bourbon Glaze

From Southern Living Sept 2014: The key to success here is to brush the Apple-Bourbon Glaze on the chops during the last few minutes on the grill, turning and brushing often to create a layered, lacquered look. Garnish the chops with grilled halves of small apples brushed with the glaze.

Remove pork from refrigerator, and let stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare glaze. 2. Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Grill chops, covered with grill lid, 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until almost done. Brush chops with glaze; turn and brush other side with glaze. Grill, covered with grill lid, 2 minutes. 3. Repeat process, without grill lid and turning chops every 10 seconds, until glaze thickens and chops are cooked through.
