my 1st attempt as a forum member

Discussion in 'Pork' started by areallynicegirl, May 23, 2015.

  1. my first official act as a new member I smoked some pork chops in the little chief.

    This is resting in the shop fridge after the brine (which was way to salty, need a better formula). I soaked and rinsed but still a little salty. Not as bad after the smoke but still would pull it way sooner than I did.

    So this is the chops finishing on the griddle.

    Hopefully I have done this correctly.....

    As your posting when you get to where you want to add the pic click on the "insert image" box then "upload" find it on your computer then hit  select it then hit "submit"
  6. I thought I did it right but at first all I could see was the jpeg blah blah blah, no actual pic.

    Thank you for your help :)

    Cottage Grove, OR?     You need to zip over to the coast and nab some King Salmon for your Little Chief.  Oh Yeah!

    Nice looking chops! Post your brine recipe and we can help you with that. Were you attempting to give the chops a hammy flavor? If so take a look at Pop's cure recipe.

    [​IMG]  and nice looking chops!
  16. Hubby is going to the coast for work tomorrow, Ive told him to bring me a salmon or dont come home at all lol.

    The brine was the "easy cure" from the Little Chief book. It was I think a quart of water and a half cup each of salt and sugar. I added extra apple juice to that (like almost half again as much) because it seemed like a ton salt for what I was trying to accomplish which was just flavor and moisture as opposed to any kind of "cure".

    It did have a very Bacony/hammy flavor, esp since the only chips I had were hickory. Which was delicious, the chops were great except a little salty. i feel like I left them in too long and so live and learn. Next time I will be more diligent :)

    You guys are the best!
