    What's the best way to cook it?

    Direct grill? (high med or low heat?)

    Indirect grill?

    I would say both. I like to smoke them with alittle apple or any fruit wood. But then I like the regular grill over direct heat set on low to medium. The family likes then hot off of something they just like my cooking. So to answer your question is hot off of one of the grills.

    ^^^^^What he said^^^^^........ really just depends on the time you have and the results you want. If you want a sweet smoky flavor and tender juicy chops go with some fruit wood and the smoker at 200 - 220. If you don't want to take that long grill em. In that case I usually use a pork rub that doesn't have sugar in it and grill away. Sometimes, when grilling or smoking, I'll sauce em with the Sweet BBQ/Wild Turkey combo shortly before they're ready to come off. You didn't say how thick the cuts were but regardless don't overcook em and they'll be great.

    since you siad fillet--
    im assuming you had it sliced--[boneless porkchops]
    i like these indirect cooked on grill----

    when i do a 1/2 or whole loin---its my electric smoker...

    one of the chain stores in my reach...[schnucks] has a sale --about every 3 monthe --with whole loin-bone in--sliced into chops for free---for about $1.79 a lb.----

    i get about 5 --real center cut pork chops to be fried-- the 2 ends i smoke--YUMM-- they usually go about 14 lbs total---i luv it

    Well I do them smoked, either stuffed or left whole and use my Mahogany glaze on it. There's a couple of recipes stuck around here that I have posted.

    Care to share some more details about your Sweet BBQ/Wild Turkey combo? I presume you mean a store bought Sweet BBQ with addition of Wild Turkey?
