    Reading this site about a month ago inspired me to buy a Brinkman Vertical Gas smoker, and the past couple weekends I've been doing spare ribs and just about have them perfect.

    When I was first reading this site I was reading a post about smoking pork chops, but now I can't find it.

    I've got like 6 2" think pork chops, weighing about 3/4 of a lb each. I had thought I read about brining overnight and then injecting with apple juice prior to smoking, but like I said I can't find the specific post. Tried searching, but apparently just not using the proper keywords.

    So, my first post here is asking for a bit of advice on smoking pork chops. Also trying to plan on when to start them, and I think I remember seeing 4-6 hours smoke time, but wanted to verify.

    Thanks in advance.

    a basic brine would be 3/4 cup of salt to 1 gallon of water. Although I just inject mine with apple juice and what ever else hits my fancy. You wil want to smoke to 160 and have smoker at 225. Hope that helps and I am sure someone with more knowledge will be along and help more

    BTW I have the same smoker
