• 4 New York (top loin) pork chops, 1-inch thick (6-ounce each)
  • 4 slices bacon, preferably maple-flavored
  • 4 tablespoons barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup lager beer, OR non-alcoholic beer
Wrap bacon around the edges of the pork and secure with a wooden toothpick.

Mix together barbecue sauce and beer.

Prepare a grill to medium-high heat (about 450 degrees F.).   Grill chops over direct heat until the internal temperature reaches between 145 degrees F. (medium rare) and 160 degrees F. (medium), on a meat thermometer, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Brush sauce on the chops the last 5 minutes of cooking time.

Remove chops from the grill and let rest for 3 minutes.
