Smoked pork chops

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I was really smoking a turkey but I couldn't let the space in the MES go to waste so I put in some thick cut pork chops. I let them sit for an hour in a half and half mix of ginger wine and soy sauce. 250 degrees for two and a half hours with light cherry smoke; took them out at 165 internal temp.

They look and smell good but the turkey is for tonight [edit - I stole a bit and they're good]

The turkey deserves a mention; it cooked a little long as I couldn't believe it would only take 4 hours and thus didn't check back soon enough. Darkmeat is terrific but the breast is a little dry.

Looks like a successful smoke - always use temp not time and your food will be properly cooked.

A bit dry?  Put some gravy on it.  Looks great to me.

This looks like awful good eating to me. We do a lot of bone-in turkey breasts. Temperature is pretty critical on turkey breasts. A ten degree too high internal cooking temp on turkey breast will make it too dry. Five degrees is pushing it.

Everything looks good from here!
