Smoked pork chops

  1. I was figuring these were going to be really dry since the chops that I have in the freezer are pretty thin. I usually throw them on the grill but gave it a shot in the smoker this time. It was worth the try. They came out tender and juicy.

    I pan fried some grated potatoes with some onion, chives, minced garlic, salt, pepper, and chili powder.

    I rubbed on some store bought pork seasoning. I put them in the smoker at 235 for about 25 minutes. I hit them hard with some apple wood smoke and some hot water in the pan. I took them to internal of 147. Pulled them and let rest for 10 minutes.

    I was shocked at how juicy and smokey they were.

    you better check your thermostat cause 25 mins at 235 degrees they would still be raw!   if that is the factory thermostat they are rarely correct.
     
  17. I know my factory one is worthless. I use two of these Pyrex Thermometers. They both read 32 degrees in ice water and 212 in boiling water. I always use one for internals and one in a potato close to what I am cooking. One thing is that the pork chops are very thin sliced. They are only about a half inch thick.
