    I have been traveling the past few weeks and have not had time to fire up a smoker.  Today, while busy I decided to do a easy quick smoke of some Pork Chops (I also did some baby backs).

    Typically I like to have the butcher cut me some nice 2" bone in pork chops, but the line was long yesterday so I grabbed 4 straight out of the case that looked good.  They are cut about an 1" thick, but they should do the job.

    I trimmed them up a bit and coated with some Yellow Mustard to hold the rub.  I did two different rubs, one with a bit more pepper and onion.  Both rubs are low salt as I have come to believe that salt is really not that important to a good tasting rub.

    I also kept the amount of rub low as I do not want to over power the natural flavor of the chop.

    I fired up the smoker with Cherry and Apple wood. 

    Here are the prep pics:

    Smoke ON!

    Chops are done!

    Turned out great, pulled them at 155 IT and let em rest for 10 minutes.  Juicy, smokey, and super tender.



    Thanks for looking!

    Smoke ON!

    Nice!

    Center cut chops are the only way to go for grilling / smoking. IMHO all the loin and sirloin cuts work better for braising..

    If you don't mind some pinkish pork, pull them at 145.. I live on the edge..

    I used my Pit Barrel Cooker.  I am really liking hanging meat.  I am planning on making hangers to use in my stick burner as well.

    Thanks,

    Jason
