smoking pork chops!!!!!!

I have some pork chops about 1/4 or1/2 inch thick ...I want to smoke them with apple wood so since they are pork can I do them just like the ribs??? 250 for a few hours or will that dry them out because they are thin? Or should I just marinate and grill indirect at 300 untill temp about 160-170...all help is welcome. ..thankyou my fellow Eggers! !!

    Being that thin I would go raised direct at about 350 dome. It won't take them long.

  • If they are regular chops I would suggest brining them first (if you have the time).  If they are whole muscle (no moisture enhanced/tenderized/water added) then I also would suggest cooking them to a lower temperature like 150-155.  They will rise a bit during the rest and you finish right around 160.  If they are pumped/tenderized whatever, then you might go to 160 before taking off since you aren't likely to dry out water anyway.

    If you don't have time to brine them it isn't a big deal, but I'd suggest a hotter fire (400+) and raised direct grate and finish at the lower temp.
