Thick cut pork chop!

edited 4:28AM in EggHead Forum
Went to our local gourmet grocery on Saturday and picked up some goodies. They have a fabulous meat department. Got a thick cut, bone in pork loin chop. Also got some great looking braut's, but that is another cook.


Put it in a brine of salt, sugar, crushed peppercorns, garlic, rosemary & sage for about 2 hours.

Took it out of the brine, rinsed it and patted dry. Sprinkled with Tsunami Spin.

On the egg at 400.

Glazed with a mixture of bbq sauce and green chili marmalade, heated on the stove.

Pulled at 140 and let it rest.

Plated with a baked sweet potato and green beans. This chop was outstanding! So big we split it.

Bella & I were yelling for Tony Stewart to get the win today, even with her Tony bling, he couldn't pull it off.

Thanks for looking!

    Looks great with the exception of what appears to be a RAW spot in your chop.
    This is the greatest signature EVAR!

    I dance on the edge of safty at times and a photo can at times be tricky but yea, I agree.
    Thank you,

    Very nice Teresa. Must cook some myself ;)

    Not raw at all. That was just where the pork was a darker shade of red, near the bone. We are both still standing today!
  • Hey Doug

    Any further word on OKC?

    Right now it looks like a 'MAYBE' at best. I am still trying to put things in order.

    All I can say is I'm taking off work Monday after the fest as well to recover.
    After the drive home to Galveston Sunday last year I was a zombie on Monday. And I even skipped the all night party followed by breakfast...
    Thank you,

    Oh yeah! I'm in. ;) :P
  • Yeah we fly out to Cozumel Sunday morning to recover this year. Might have to take it a little easier this year but if we manage to pull off the win again you just know that ain't gonna happen...

    What a great way to recover from OKC.
    You travel in style...
    Thank you,

    Very good looking dinner....I was pulling for Tony too (once it became clear that Junior couldn't win). Better luck next week... ;)
  • Once we pay to get all the way to OKC it's (relatively) cheap to travel on. Paying for that flight for only 3 days is a little crazy. Last year we went to San Fran afterwards.

  • Looks absolutely fantastic!! I really enjoy the Tsunami Spin, I just got two new jars of it...

    Nice pictures too!

    Doug . . . Hoping you can make it to OKC this year!

    Who else is going to drive team hardcore to breakfast at 3 am? :silly: :ermm:

    As always your plating as well as food look great! Auron wouldn't mind meeting Bella though. Oklahoma prehaps? :whistle:

    Very tasty looking meal Teresa
    Bella looks so happy, she loves her new home :)

  • That thick chop looks so good, Teresa.
