I did some cured and smoked chops awhile back.http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/171753/bone-in-cured-and-smoked-chops I think they needed more smoke. So i picked this thick one. Put some pitmasters blend in my dust smoker. The dust and the chop on the mini. Then pan fried. Yup, it worked. Gonna be a good lunch tomorrow.
