Take soy sauce, water, brown sugar, molasses and salt - mix together in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
Put chops in a pan with bone side up.
Pour marinade over the pork chops and let stand overnight in refrigerator.(ziplock bag might work here too)
Take chops out of marinade
Place in baking pan and cover tightly with foil.
Put in 375 degree oven
And bake until tender - about 2 hours.
While chops are baking, combine all red sauce ingredients in heavy saucepan
Mix well - leaving no lumps.
Bring all ingredients to a slight boil.
After chops are tender
Remove from oven and dip in red sauce.
Take chops after dipping and place in same baking pan and bake for 30 minutes more in 350 degree oven or until slightly glazed.
Both sauces can be reused if brought to a boil and stored in refrigerator or frozen.
For an extra flavor keep at room temperature until you are ready to put on a grill.
Have grill as high as possible from coals, not a large bed of coals is needed.
Place finished chops on grill
Let cook slowly, a little blacking does not hurt chops -- grilling should not take more than 15 minutes.
