Smoked some butterfly chops this weekend with not alot of success ;(

I soaked them in buttermilk and spices for a day and then put them in the smoker @ 225 for around two hours. Just wasn't the flavor I was going for. I was looking more for a ham taste but not sure how to get there. Any suggestions?

To get the "hammy taste" you will more than likely need to cure them

Get a bag of Morton's Tenderquick or Morton's Sugar Cure. You can use either of them as a dry cure or a wet cure (Brine Cure), just follow the directions on the bag. Once you have them cured, put them in the smoker and you'll achieve that hammy taste you're looking for.
