4 Hour Pork Steaks

Did two thick cut pork steaks and a pot of Marvlus Marvs baked beans. The cook turned out really good, but it took a lot longer than I had anticipated. I used Butt Rub and mustard on the steaks and I started them out indirect with a plate setter at 250 degrees +/- for almost 3 hours. The internal temp as measured on my quick read thermometer was still only 120-130 after three hours so I raised the temp to 320 for the next hour and added sause 20 minutes before taking them off. The beans were fantastic and the steaks turned out very good - nice and tender and a very agreeable flavor. Internal temp ran 140-145. This is a cook well worth repeating, but I would like to be able to get them done a little quicker. Next time I will start out at 300 indirect and see how they turn out after 2-3 hours.

    Why don't you try them at 250 direct?? It will give you more crust, and should be done a lot faster. Worth a try anywho!![p]glad it worked out...even though it wasn't as you planned.[p]Cheers!

    Nature Boy,
    I think that is a good suggestion. I will try them that way next time I cook pork steaks.
