Pork loin cut into chops and marinated in Dichiko's Garlic.  Done on the LBGE with a raised grid at 400.  Took 10 minutes to a side to reach 160 inside.

Veggies were done on the XL with a half load.  They were on for 30 minutes before I did the meat, and were stirred every 10 minutes.

Pics to follow.

  • How thick we're the chops? If mine are thick enough, I usually cook to about 145F internal. You may want to try in the future if you haven't done so. Your chops sounds good.

  • 140 to 160 is my target.  I got these a little more well done, but they were still not dry.

    For some reason, if I post pics in the original message, I can't see them later.

    Looks great doc!
  • Hey Doc meaning no disrespect but your veggies look similar and very tasty each time.  Do you use fresh and but have a tried and true method of slicing up or do you use a packaged mix.  I have been trying to find a packaged mix to help cut down on time prepping, now that the kiddos are back in school.

    Our veggies are pretty much the same during the week.  Part of our success with changing our eating has been to find veggies we could use routinely but not burn out on.  These are always fresh, I cut them of each cook.  Carrot chips on the bottom (from our food processor), peppers, zucchini, onions, and garlic.  Tonight I threw some asparagus tips in.  They take a lot longer to prepare than the meat.

    Excellent Doc, just excellent. 
    We have been putting our veggies in their own little foil pouch lately, much like you layered. The advantage is we can select our choice of mix. Much like Lizzie asked, I found the size of the cut veggie has a lot to do with success.
