You cannot beat the flavour of a rare breed pork chop cooked on a barbecue. I like to bring the pork to room temperature in a marinade of olive oil, garlic, lemon peel, thyme and fennel seeds. Barbecued pork chops work well with a spoonful of Mexican mole sauce that you can make in advance and serve in a kilner jar.
