Prepare grill gas or charcoal grill with a high heat sear zone and an indirect cooking zone (not over direct heat). Heat reserved marinade in a saucepan for 15 minutes on med/low heat. Place the chops over the high heat sear zone, cook for 2 minutes, then rotate 90 degrees, cook for 2 minutes, then flip. Baste each chop with the warmed marinade.

Remove chops to cutting board and tent with foil for 8 - 10 minutes letting internal temperature reach 160° F/71° C before serving.
