6 T. brown sugar, divided
1 T. chili powder
2 t. dry mustard
6 boneless pork chops
3/4 c. ketchup
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. cider vinegar
1 T. Dijon mustard
1/2 t. Tabasco sauce, or more to taste
Heat a grill to medium / medium high.
In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar with the chili powder, dry mustard, and 1 tablespoon of kosher salt. Spread the pork chops on a baking sheet and rub the spice mixture all over them.
In a small saucepan, whisk the remaining 4 tablespoons brown sugar with the ketchup, soy sauce, cider vinegar, and Dijon mustard; bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes to dissolve the sugar and blend the flavors. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Taste and add a pinch of salt if needed. Stir in the Tabasco, adding more to taste.
Place the chops on the grill. Cover and cook on the first side for 3 - 4 minutes. Turn; cook on the second side for 3 minutes. Turn, brush with some of the sauce, cook 1 minute. Turn again, brush with sauce, and cook another minute. Remove chops from grill, tent with foil, and allow them to rest five minutes before serving.
