2" Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Pork Chop Duo!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Guests for supper....smoked stuffed pork chop duo! Cream cheese spiced apple bacon and bacon wraped cream cheese wild rice cheddar queso.

Was in a hurry so I apologize for not taking pictures from begining to end.

I have always wanted to smoke some huge 2" pork chops. I took 6-2" chops and sliced them about 4 inches towards the center opposite the bone end to make a nice pocket for the stuffing.

I cranked up the MES smoker to 275 degrees. Added apple wood to get some smoke rolling.

Fillng..1 granny Smith apple peeled and scored and diced. Added diced apple to a pan with butter, cinnamon and rosemary. I fried apple, smoked bacon, brown sugar and room temp Cream cheese...mixed and let cool.

2nd stuffing: cooked wild rice, cream cheese, queso cheddar cheese, fried bacon chopped,and cream cheese. Stirred together and let it cool.

3 chops stuffed with apple and 3 chops stuffed with wild rice cheddar queso. I wrapped each chop with 2 pieces of bacon and put them in a preheated smoker with apple wood. Once all chops were in I turned temp down to 230 degrees for 1.5 hours. Then they were transferred to a hot grill for 3 min. Per side or internal temp of 145-150. They were tender, juicy and delicious.

Wrapping them in bacon kept them moist and delicious. A brine is nice but in this case I had no time and went with no brine and still achieved a tender juicy chop.

They were a hit and will make these again.

Very good. I would try stuffed wrapped chops too.

Those chops sound good. We love stuffed pork chops.

I'd sure like a bit more detail on filling #1.
