Secret -- for your back yard grilling

I am going to share a big secret with you. It's my secret seasoning recipe for grilling pork chops or chicken. Cook at med-high to high.

First, for pork chops, use center cut pork chops. Season with Montreal steak seasoning, lemon and pepper seasoning and garlic salt. Grill for 120 seconds and rotate 90 degrees on your grill. Cook for another 2 minutes, then flip. Add a pat of butter to the top after you flip them. Don't overcook. You may want to cook your pork chops and wrap in aluminum foil to allow them to finish cooking without drying them out on the grill.

For chicken, it's nearly the same deal. Use Montreal chicken seasoning, lemon and pepper seasoning and garlic salt. Season the whole piece of chicken, then cook it. If you used chicken breasts or other cuts that allow, you can add the pat of butter when you flip them. But basically, cook them until they are done.

If you are so inclined, you may use the spicy version of the Montreal seasoning. I like it with the regular seasoning or the spicy version. 

There you have it. A great way to season your meat for grilling. Let me know how it works out!
