Marinade: (2 hours)
1/2 cup water

1/4 cup Worchestershire Sauce
1/3 cup EV Olive Oil
1 heaping tablespoon of chopped garlic
’bout 10 Basil leaves chopped into ribbons
Oil the grill with some olive oil, then crank it so it hits like 450-500 degrees. (You don’t have to, but I threw on a cedar plank and got it smoking during this time before I put the chops on) Put the chops on and turn down the grill so it stays around 350 for the rest of the time. Close lid. (On our grill this means turn it down to about half-power for all of the burners) Grill 2 minutes, then turn (not flip, just turn), them a quarter turn and grill 2 more minutes on the same side. Close lid. Then flip and grill 2 minutes, (close lid) and then turn them a quarter turn and grill for 2 more minutes. Close lid… (8 minutes total, 4-minutes each side). Remove to a plate, wrap it all up with foil and let them rest for 5 minutes. There you go.
