2. If the chops have a thick edge of fat, trim the skin and fat away using the natural line as a guide. There should be around 1 cm of fat remaining.

5. Light two gas burners on the Jupiter Outback BBQ and set the heat to low-medium. Cooking the pork chops slowly lets the fat and outside of the meat gently caramelise while ensuring the chops cook through. 

6. Cook the pork chops, turning regularly, for around 10-15 minutes, depending on size and thickness.
