Pork Chop Suggestions

I have 4 boneless chops about one inch thick and am looking for a simple way to cook these on the Egg.  I have never done chops on the Egg.  Thanks.

  • Raised grid, direct, 400.  I like Traeger Sweet Rub on them, but you're unlikely to pick that up in  time.  Allegro Hot & Spicy can be found in stores, and it is a great marinade.  If you want to go minimal, EVOO, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

    We're having loin chops tomorrow.  I buy cheaper than all get out big pork loins, and cut them into chops.

    Don't overcook them. Pull them at 145 degrees IT.

  • I know I'm starting to sound like I'm on commission for the "reverse sear" - but it works great for pork chops. Slow cook to 120 internal pull and sear to 145 internal. Nice flavor as the smoke gets a chance to hit the chop.

    Well, it just makes so much sense.  I'm sous vide-ing everything since I got that unit, been doing a lot of reverse searing lately.

  • Cook as suggested above, then a few minutes before pulling them off, put pepper jelly on top for a glaze.

    These have become a standard for us! I take them and cut a slit on the opposite side of the fat band. Inside I place a dill sliced pickle wrapped in a nice slice of white cheese - pepperjack works great.

    stuff this inside and coat with a nice rub of your choice. My wife loves them!

    "Juicy Lucy" pork chops - great idea, must give that a try.

    How do you keep them closed?

    Never would have thought of pepper jelly.  Thanks for the idea.

  • Dizzy Pig Raging River is super on pork chops. Just sprinkle on and grill away.
