Directions:

  1. Build a fire in your grill. When the coals are all ignited, the flames have died down, and the temperature is medium (see Gauging the temperature), you're ready to cook.
  2. While the fire is heating up, combine the ingredients for the spice rub in a small bowl and mix well. Rub the pork chops lightly with oil, then coat them generously with the spice rub. Set the chops aside while you make the salsa.
  3. Make the salsa: Combine the peaches, onion, chipotle, lime juice, cilantro, and salt and pepper in a medium bowl and mix well. Set aside.
  4. Put the chops on the grill over the coals and cook, turning once, until done to your liking (10-12 minutes per side for medium). To check for doneness, poke the meat with your finger to test its firmness (see The "hand method"); if you're unsure, cut into the thickest part of one of the chops and peek at the center to be sure it is just slightly less done than you like it.
  5. Serve the chops hot, and pass the salsa on the side.
