Reverse sear pork chops on the Mini

R2Egg2QR2Egg2Q Posts: 1,652
I found some nice boneless pork chops (about 1 1/4" thick and 1/2 lb+ each) that I seasoned with some Simply Marvelous Sweet & Spicy rub and cooked indirect on the Mini until they reached an internal temp around 115-118. I pulled them off the Mini for a few minutes while the Egg & CI got nice and hot: Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

Then put them onto the CI for a sear: Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

Pulled them at an IT of 145 and enjoyed after a few minutes rest: Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

Thx for looking!

    Those look great! I never was a big pork chop fan until I got the egg now I love them. Love the sear marks!  =P~

    Was it the same reason I never would eat them? Mom thought them done at 200 so she cooked them to 250.

    Admittedly I over cooked pork chops for years until the USDA lowered the minimum recommended temp in 2011. Pork seems so much leaner now than 25-30 years ago so I always figured it was dry because so much fat had been bred out of the pigs. #-o

    A perfectly cooked pork chop is tough to beat.  I've never considered a reverse sear, but after seeing this I definitely will.  Nice job!

    You have inspired me to do the same on my Mini. May use Raging River seasoning.  Wow, they look so good.

    Fred is not gonna like this!  ...but the chops do look great! ;)

    I say this is a valid necro bump, because @Chubbs now has a mini with which to sear some chops.




    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Gotta try that reverse sear again.  Didn't give myself enough time last round and had to crank heat halfway through.  Chops look great.
