Combine pineapple juice, brown sugar, soy sauce and garlic powder. Pour over pork chops and marinate for at least four hours, up to overnight.

Preheat grill to medium heat.

Remove chops from the marinade and discard any remaining marinade.

Grill chops for 3 – 4 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F.

While chops are grilling, place pineapple rings on the grill and cook until slightly charred, about 2 minutes.

Serve pork chops with pineapple rings.
