I've been craving some for a while now. Nice chops are hard to come by around here. I gotta go see a butcher soon.
Surprisingly, my local supermarket is King when it comes to pork chops. I get the extra thick ones fir $1.89 or something per pound. Two thick chops costs $3 bucks and change for dinner. The ones in the pic are regular size thickness, but a tad more expensive per pound than the thick ones. I like bone-in with some dark meat sections. Eats almost like a ribeye when cooked right.

How about this one, Jeeks? Weber*Weber Char Q*-*GrillStuff

Doesn't have the little warmer rack, but it's sturdy, with cast iron grates.

A lot pricier than your little grill, but this IS a Weber, after all. Brand new model this year.

I have a large gas grill out on the deck but I recently picked up a Lodge cast iron hibachi for grilling for just the wife and I or for a small party. I'm having such a ball with this little grill that I decided to build a custom table for it which I just completed this week.

The Weber Char Q is nicely built as well but a bit pricey and the side handles stick out too wide for my taste.

Update:

I just received my new CG Patio Pro grill. My wife thought it was the cutest thing. I'm ready to make some minor mods on it this weekend so I can use it as a table top unit. I already love the feel of this grill. Yes, I'm ready!

My grill for about 3 years was a tiny gas thing that used those 2 pound disposable bottles.
Learned to grill in shifts!
I now have a nice Coleman gas grill. :)

And a 16 inch diameter or so Weber kettle charcoal grill. This thread has inspired me!
I think I will pick up some charcoal, dig up my wood chunks and have some fun. I
have a pork loin defrosting, hmmmmm......
