Spice Rub
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon hot smoked paprika (Pimentón de la Vera)
2 teaspoons seasoned salt
2 teaspoons dry mustard
2 teaspoons fine sea salt
2 teaspoons celery salt
2 teaspoons garlic salt
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground chipotle chile powder or Ancho chile powder
  Glaze
3/4 cup jellied cranberry sauce (about half of one 16 ounce can)
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup cran-raspberry juice
2 tablespoons triple sec or other orange liqueur
1½ teaspoons grated orange peel
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
For spice rub: Mix all ingredients in small bowl.

For glaze: Mix first 8 ingredients in small saucepan. Bring to boil over medium heat, whisking until smooth. Cool to room temperature.

Do ahead: Spice rub and glaze can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and store spice rub at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate glaze. Rewarm glaze just until pourable before using.

Spray grill rack with nonstick spray and prepare barbecue (medium heat). Sprinkle spice rub generously over both sides of pork chops (about 1/2 tablespoon per side), pressing to adhere. Place pork chops on grill, cover, and cook 5 minutes per side. Brush generously with glaze. Move to cooler part of grill and continue to grill, uncovered, until cooked through, brushing frequently with glaze, about 3 minutes longer per side.
