Air Fryer BBQ Pork Chops

Air Fryer BBQ Pork Chops are a delicious and easy-to-make dish that combines the tenderness of pork chops with the flavorful smokiness of barbecue sauce. Here’s a simple recipe to help you prepare them:


  • 4 bone-in pork chops
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder (optional, for a bit of heat)
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder (if using), salt, and pepper.
  3. Pat the pork chops dry with a paper towel, then sprinkle the spice mixture evenly over both sides of the pork chops.
  4. Place the seasoned pork chops in a single layer in the air fryer basket, ensuring they are not overcrowded. You may need to cook them in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
  5. Cook the pork chops in the preheated air fryer for 10 minutes.
  6. After 10 minutes, carefully flip the pork chops using tongs, and brush the tops with barbecue sauce.
  7. Return the pork chops to the air fryer and cook for an additional 7-8 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F (63°C) for medium doneness. If you prefer your pork chops more well-done, you can cook them a bit longer.
  8. Remove the pork chops from the air fryer and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
  9. Serve the air fryer BBQ pork chops with additional barbecue sauce on the side, if desired.

Enjoy your delicious air fryer BBQ pork chops! They pair well with sides like roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or coleslaw.
