  1. You put the rub on the chops before you plop them in the pan, right? Do they sit for a while after they are rubbed, or do you immediately put them in the pan? Thanks. I'm more a novice than you and while I'm at it - I read your blog every day and thoroughly enjoy it!

  2. Hi Joan! We let the rub sit on the pork for maybe 5 minutes before they went into the pan!
