1 teaspoon brown sugar 
1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder 
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 
4 bone-in pork loin chops, about 1 inch thick

In a small bowl combine the ground chile pepper, 1 teaspoon of the salt, brown sugar, cocoa powder, and cayenne pepper. Rub onto all sides of the chops. Toss zucchini with olive oil to lightly coat. Season with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, the dried oregano, and black pepper.
For a charcoal or gas grill, grill the chops on the greased rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat for 11 to 13 minutes (150°F), turning once. Add the zucchini the last 4 minutes of grilling or until crisp tender, turning once. (No longer outdoor grilling season, no problem just use your stove top grill same directions on medium heat.)
