I have been traveling the past few weeks and have not had time to fire up a smoker. Today, while busy I decided to do a easy quick smoke of some Pork Chops (I also did some baby backs).
Typically I like to have the butcher cut me some nice 2" bone in pork chops, but the line was long yesterday so I grabbed 4 straight out of the case that looked good. They are cut about an 1" thick, but they should do the job.
I trimmed them up a bit and coated with some Yellow Mustard to hold the rub. I did two different rubs, one with a bit more pepper and onion. Both rubs are low salt as I have come to believe that salt is really not that important to a good tasting rub.
I also kept the amount of rub low as I do not want to over power the natural flavor of the chop.
I fired up the smoker with Cherry and Apple wood.
Here are the prep pics:
