I slit the 2" chops before curing with a mixture of turbinado sugar and tenderquick. Gave them a quick 2 hour cure, then rinsed well..
Made a stuffing with jalapeno, corn, onion cornbread... using melted butter and chicken broth to bind...
Stuffed the cured/rinsed chops..
I smoked the chops with apple at 275F for the first 20 minutes then at 300F for the remaining time. (about 2 hours)
The apple smoked jalapeno cornbread stuffed chops, fried green tomatoes and some goodies from my garden.
After all of that anticipation I could only eat about one fourth of the chop and two tomatoes... The leftovers have been good though.
Thanks for looking. :)
