Pork chops ??

Postby bondobill » Mon Feb 20, 2017 11:23 am

A friend of my wife gave us a couple large pork chops from a hog they butchered.
He called them red meat chops :dont:

We don't make pork chops very often....always come out dry no matter how I do them :(

Anyone got any suggestions on how to cook these bad boys. :pig: Doesn't neccesarily have to be grilled or smoked .

Wild Bill, I can relate to dry poke chops believe me so I just started stuffing mine and basting with some Q sauce or like wise then they are finishing up. Those certainly are choice looking cuts right there for sure :tup: :salut:

It's been a while since I've had a dry one, to be honest. An instant read thermometer is key for me.

What I do is season them with Emeril's Essence. Get the Weber going. Sear them. Move them to indirect with the bone towards the heat.

Once the IT reaches 150, I pull them and let them rest.

Good luck if you try it!

Yup…both of the above have helped me. Brine and watching the temp.

Done temp for pork recently dropped. I book marked the FDA safe cooking recommendations link on my phone so I can always check it.

Ditto here bill, can't cook a pork chop to save myself. I just keep to mince and make meat balls now.
