Burgers: TABASCO® isn’t just a condiment – it’s an ingredient! Mix TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce into your burger to make the smokiest, juiciest burger ever. Tip: Ground pork is a flavorful meat that is an excellent recipe alternative or complement to ground beef.
Charcoal Grills Direct Heat Method
Use the direct method for small, tender pieces of food that take less than 20 minutes to cook, such as burgers, chops, or marinated fresh pork. Place food over the coals on the cooking grate.
Where there’s smoke there’s flavor
DRY RUBS: FIRST, SPLASH THE TABASCO®! It adds an amazing layer of flavor, plus it helps the dry spices stick. Use TABASCO® Original Red Sauce with ground coffee and garlic as a rub for pork steak or chops.

Charcoal Grills Indirect Heat Method
Use the indirect method for larger cuts of meat that require 20 minutes or more of grilling time, or for foods so delicate that direct exposure to the heat would dry them out or scorch them, such as: roasts, ribs, or pork butts. Place food over the unlit part of the cooking grate.
How to grill pork chops
90 seconds to Ribs
Every griller’s essential sidekick, the Rapidfire Chimney Starter, is the fastest and easiest way to get grilling and start eating.
  1. Place 2 lighter cubes under the Rapidfire Chimney Starter and light.
  2. After 15-30 minutes the briquettes will have a gray ash.
  3. Pour the briquettes onto the fuel grate and preheat the grill
Choosing the right Charcoal
Made with ripe, red jalapeño peppers that have been smoked to perfection, TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce gives BBQ and tailgate foods a rich, smoky flavor – on or off the grill! Use it as a marinade, meat rub or basting sauce for grilled meats, and season slow-cooked meat dishes with a few dashes for a deep smokehouse flavor.
Smoke on the side, too! Mix the mild, smoked-pepper deliciousness of TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce into sides like coleslaw and baked beans or stir it into ketchup, mayo and your favorite dips, sauces and dressings.
