When smokin chops I like to brine them shortly the cook at 200-225. Takes 2 to 4 hours dependin on thickness. Cook to 160 and enjoy. Great, now I gotta do chops soon. Maybe after the meatloaf which comes after the chicken which follows the.....oh man I love this.
I like to marinate the pork chops 1/2 a day to add moisture. Also cut the pork chops 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" thick, as I feel a thin pork chops will cook while smoking too fast. I smoke for about an hour and then switch them to a grill to finish them about 10 minutes per side.
