    We got some great looking pork chops this weekend and I decided to smoke them. I brined them for about 4-5 hours in a simple salt, sugar, and soy sauce brine. I had good results brining a pork shoulder last weekend, so why not give it a try. I used a dry rub of brown sugar, garlic powder, seasoned salt, black pepper, and a dash of cayenne.

    I smoked them with applewood at 235 degrees for a little over 2 hours and took off at 160 degrees internal temperature.

    They turned out fantastic, very moist and flavorful. Maybe the best pork chops I have ever made myself at home. I have had some other things turn out just OK, so I am very pleased with this recipe.

    Next up, another attempt at Brisket!

    Go Browns! & Buckeyes for that matter!

    Those look great, hopefully they were tender...

    Pretty pork chops, that little bit of sugar coats them and give a little sweet to the taste also.

    Beautiful looking chops.
