    Does anyone have a rough idea on a timeline to smoke up some iowa chops. Using a smoky moutain and around 225 -250 temps going to shoot for.

    I wouls say if they are about 3/4 or 1" thick. I would think about an hour to hour and a half. I would take them to maybe 145-150 or so but we like a little pink to ours.

    Iowa chops are usualy 11/4 to 11/2 thick so maybe 2 to 21/2 hours.

    For your temps, I would say 1.5 - 2 hrs. Planning on doing the same thing tomorrow with four monster chops. We cut our's like T-Bone's, ~ the same size as you described and that has been the cook time at 250. I like mine well done though.

    Will be interesting in this weather!

    Sounds tasty, especially the T-Bone cut [​IMG]
    Though personally I like my loins, chops, whatever cooked to medium.
