some Chops for dinner -Qview

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

been breaking the MES 30 in pretty good this week.. Mon. was burger,tues. was Chicken. tonight was Pork Choppers.. the more I use it the better my smokes are turning out with it..I use the AMNPS as the lil chip box would keep me busy lol... I must admit this little gem is starting to rock some flavor..



very basic - McCormic rub with extra garlic and seasoned salt.

Going in- basic as it gets with some great taste-McCormic pork rub and some extra garlic and seasoned salt

had the temp set at 225 for this trial- they were at 160 in 1:15 so I cut the temp back to 180 and added some bbq sauce to a few.

They cooked a little faster than I thought they would with the MES set on 225- at 1:15 into the smoke the temp alarm was beeping, I backed it off to 185degrees and let r smoke some more...

a little bend and peekaboo.

you can bend a chop just like a set of ribs.


This is some of the best chops I have turned out all year, they were perfect.. The more I cook on our MES 30 the more I get used to it and the results are starting to show that this lil smoker is actually pretty badd azz for electric.. I run a AMNPS in it and was hitting this smoke hard as I could with both ends lit..

I am a happy man... They tasted delish and the smoke flavor of the apple/hickory blend was great with the chops...

Those look real tasty.  What was the total cook time?

I ended up backing them down again to 145 and held them there.. total time was 2 hrs 15 minutes as my better half rolled in at 5:30 and I pulled them out and the rest is history.. they are the thinnest meat I have smoked so far and the temp got ahead of me,ill have to slow them down by starting at about 150-160 next time then raising the temp on up... they still had decent moisture inside and a awesome taste for something so basic...

thanks for looking-
