Hey all,
I have never stuffed a pork chop, I have stuffed many pork loins and pork tenderloins. So I figured I would give it a try, but only one in the event I screwed up, we would still have a meal.

Started with a fresh thick cut chop.

Sauteed some apples in butter, shallot, sage, and a touch of brown sugar

Partially butterflied a pork chop to create a pocket

Kept the apple mixture warm so the chop would cook evenly. I also added in some smoked Gouda

Stuffed it and seasoned with my sweet honey rub and EVOO

I also made a couple other chops that were not stuffed. One with my sweet honey rub and the other with a blend of ginger powder, onion powder, white pepper and salt. I coated both with mayo before adding rub. I find that this really keeps pork moist.

On to the PBC at 235 with Apple wood

Pulled them as they each reached 145 IT

We all loved it, simple side salad and pasta rounded out a great meal.


Thanks for looking.


Smoke ON!

Looks great. Been many years since I had a stuffed chop.

That really looks good!
I haven’t had a stuffed pork chop since I was a kid.
But after seeing yours, it won’t be long now!
Awesome job!

Dang those look good. Been many, many years since had a stuffed chop.
Pork chops used to be my dads favorite meat, hands down.

My mom used to make them when I was a kid, but always over cooked them and always dried them out. It has been great to find out how good chops can be when cooked properly!
