    As I was getting the loin in the cure today I sliced some for chops for dinner tonight. I wanted to see if I could duplicate the smoked pork chops you buy at the store for an arm and a leg. I used the correct amount of TQ, rubbed it in and put them in a zipper bag. In the fridge it goes for a couple of hours.

    Rinsed them off, blotted them dry and let them sit while the smoker heated up. Smoked them for 3 hrs at about 230-250 using oak. I'm using the brinkmann as a wood burner today in case I get a New Braunfels Bandera. It was interesting to see what happens when. I definitely need more practice and luckily it will be sunny and dry all week. [​IMG]

    They were gone in a flash. [​IMG] It is close to what I'm looking for but not quite. I will definitely be doing these again.

    They might have a slight taste of ham to them, it's really hard to describe. I believe that Smithfield is the company that sells the smoked pork chops that I love.
