Meanwhile, make the glaze: In a small saucepan, combine the ginger ale, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, and rosemary. Cook on the stovetop over medium-low heat until it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon but still pourable, 15-20 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and cover to keep the glaze warm.

Remove the pork rib chops from the grill and increase the temperature to 450℉. Preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes.

Lightly drizzle the pork rib chops with olive oil. Place the chops back on the grill and insert the probe horizontally into the center of a chop, avoiding the bone. Close the lid and cook for 5 minutes, then flip the chops and baste with the glaze. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 145°F, about 5 minutes more.
