Texas Thick-Cut Smoked Pork Chops
Was it possible to get that pit-smoked Texas flavor with nothing but a charcoal grill?
Why This Recipe Works
To achieve perfectly smoked chops, we bought the thickest ones we could find to ensure that they wouldn’t overcook during the 45 to 50 minutes they’d be the grill. For authentic Texas Hill Country flavor, we used mesquite chips. To add flavor as well as retain moisture, we brined the chops in a solution of salt, sugar, and water. We finished the chops by brushing them with a pungent and bright homemade barbecue sauce.
