Family favorite Oven BBQ Pork Chops are marinated and coated with tangy barbecue sauce for an easy dinner everyone will love!
If you love the flavor of Barbecue but don’t want to or can’t always cook on the grill, you will love this Oven BBQ Pork Chop recipe. I use this same recipe using chicken thighs too, and it is just as tasty.
When I lived down south in North Carolina, a friend showed me how to make this delicious recipe. We were both craving barbecue and it was too cold to grill so we made these instead.
Instead of chops, she used pork blade steaks. They are larger than pork chops. the meat is more tender, and they were amazing! That delicious meat was eaten right to the bone! Sadly, I can’t find blade steaks up here, so I use bone-in pork chops instead.

- Barbecue Sauce – this recipe was made with a thick, brown sugar barbecue sauce.
- Olive Oil – use whichever liquid oil you prefer.
- Italian Dressing
- Montreal Steak Seasoning – this is a family favorite. Sometimes I’ll use Smokehouse Maple to change it up.

OVEN BBQ PORK CHOPS
Oven BBQ Pork Chops owe their flavor and tenderness to the marinade. Easy to make, just marinade, put in an oven safe baking pan and cook.
- 4–6 medium bone in pork chops (1/2 to 3/4 inch thick) about 2 pounds
- 18 ounce bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce, reserve 3 tablespoons for the marinade
- 2–3 tablespoons olive oil (vegetable oil will do)
- 1/4 cup of House Italian Dressing
- 1 tablespoon Montreal Steak Seasoning
- 3 tablespoons BBQ sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce or a few drops liquid smoke
- Mix all the marinade ingredients right in a gallon size ziploc bag. Add the pork chops and toss inside the bag until each chop is covered with the marinade. Refrigerate in plastic bag for 2-4 hours.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray.
- Spread 1/2 cup of barbecue sauce in bottom of pan. Layer marinated chops over sauce.
- Discard leftover marinade.
- Pour remaining barbecue sauce over the pork chops.
- Put the pan uncovered in the oven for 55 – 60 minutes.( Baste with juices at halfway point). Meat is done when a thermometer inserted at thickest part of chop reads 145° F.
- Remove from the oven. Let stand for 10 minutes to cool prior to serving.
Marinated pork chops may be grilled. Grill as usual, then coat with BBQ when meat thermometer registers at least 145° F.
