How to Make Smoked Pork Chops
Learn how to make Smoked Pork Chops on a smoker. This recipe is perfect for beginner meat smoking and produces a juicy, smoke filled thick pork chop that is to die for!
Servings: 4 large pork chops
- 1 1/2 tablespoons salt
- 1 tablespoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
- 4 2-inch thick cut pork chops
- Olive oil
Preheat an outdoor pellet smoker
to 250 degrees.
In a small bowl, mix together salt, pepper, paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder.
Rub pork chops with olive oil on all sides. Season with spice mixture and rub on all sides.
Heat a skillet or grill to high heat. Sear the pork chops briefly on each side, just enough to form a slight crust.
Place seared pork chops on the smoker. Close the lid and smoke until the internal temperature of the pork reaches 145 degrees F, which will take approximately 90 minutes, but will depend on the thickness of your pork chop. Use an internal probe or thermometer for best results.
Remove and let rest 5-10 minutes before serving.
