Trust me - I've eaten my fair share of pork chops with rice and gravy ... you don't want to mess around with the chops too much or you'll get competing flavors.

The grilling will add flavor to the chops. If you feel you just must add something else ... a little garlic, onion, cayenne pepper, sage would compliment the sausage in the gravy - not compete with it.

Ok - then I'm thinkin of somethin like the following:

blackened seasoning
thyme
evoo

the evoo is just to make the rest be a lil bit pasty... Slather it on and grill, then smother in the sausage gravy.....

Will that suck?

You're prolly right - I just have trouble not adding **** when I'm in the kitchen....

Two ideas:

(1) wrap in bacon (cmon - how can that be bad? lol)

(2) use some dijon mustard somehow (dunno)

IMHO - yep, it would suck! But, I'm an old Southern boy and you're messen with a Southen classic dish. Sometimes - less is more (aka- don't mess with it too much).

I would maybe use the "blackened" seasoning as a dry rub - but probably more if I was going to make blackened chops with red beans and rice with gravy.

You're mixing too many things here. There is no use grilling the chops if your going to smother them in the sausage gravy - the flavor of the grilling will get lost. Thyme and EVOO would be great - if you were going to smother the chops in a tomato sauce.

Grilled chops with a side of rice and gravy is one thing. Chops smothered in gravy served over rice is another. Grilled chops, smoked chops, BBQ (with sauce) chops is another.

try a dry rub of sea salt, fresh cracked pepper, and garlic and onion powder. i love grilled chops; do 'em all the time. the grilling, then topped with gravy sounds really good!

Probably too late for this, but make a basting sauce using maple syrup as the base. The baste will give your pork a nice glaze to it, and the sweetness will go with the sausages in the gravy.
