Honestly, these were really good. After the initial searing on the grill I added some dry red pepper flake (not a lot) and put them on indirect heat in the grill until the came to temp on the thermometer.

Marinated for 24 hours in tight ziplock, grilled and served with cuban black beans and fresh corn, and sliced avocado. Thought chop was good but not amazing. Hubby liked it tho'. I thought something is missing from the marinade, I even added few dashes of onion powder, and dash of salt before adding the meat. Needs something else to give it a zing... any ideas? Fresh orange rind? After grilled, never would guess it was orange juice as base.

This was fine. It's another that's closer to 3 than 4. The marinade certainly gave a bit of a fresher feel to texture of the meat but it didn't add the zest to the taste that I was expecting.
