Smoked Pork chops with Loaded Hasselback Potatoes and Spicy Apple Sauce

Had a package of pork chops that I wanted to smoke , so here it goes. They are thinner than I would like them to be

Dressed them with just salt and pepper and smoked with Mesquite chunks. In the smoker at 225 deg. for approx. 2 hours
to an internal temp of 135+/-. Than on the grill at 500 deg just to give some color and char look, on the Charbroiler.

Made some Hasselback potatoes and filled the slices with sliced onions and cooked bacon. I only loaded up 3 of the potatoes incase
My bride did not want it loaded ( have to cover the bases ). I brushed the outside of the potatoes with the bacon drippings than black
pepper, NO SALT as the bacon drippings are salty enough. In the smoker for an hour with the pork chops
to get a little smoke in them , than into the BBQ until the chops were ready.
Put the potatoes in a pan with foil just for easy clean up and add the grated cheddar and green onions 5 minutes on grill with cover closed.

So while the food is smoking I made a pot of Spicy Apple Sauce, Just figured out what taste i roughly wanted and here it is
- 1 1/2 cup apple sauce ( did not make any of my own yet as the apples are not ready )
- 1 jalapeno diced small
- 1/8 tea cinnamon
- 1/8 cayenne pepper
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon cilantro chopped ( not too hot at all, as Mona does not like it burning mouth )
bring to a simmer , and serve warm with meal

Here are the pictures of the meal , thanks for following

Thats it folfs , was very nice , just enough spice in the sauce . If it was just me i would have brought up the heat just a little more. Loved the potatoes. Nice crisp to the skin , chops were nice and tender juicy.
And the naked potato, still sits there , all by its self. lol. I knew she would want a loaded one

Thanks for making it to the end

You knocked that one out David! Man that looks good. Almost looks like boston butt pork steaks. Those potatoes and that apple sauce look top notch. Nice cook!
