East, West & South Applewood Smoked Porkchops

Marion Dyess


Once I'm done with the sauce - I let it cool and purée it in a bullet or blender- ummm delicious!
I just like experimenting. These pork chops became an alternative to frying for me. If you don't have a smoker just grill them with some applewood flavoring of some kind - Bon Appetit.

8I put applewood chips in my smoker grill after my desired temperature is reached. I'll oil the grill and then place my pork chops on the grill.

9Turn each 35-40 minutes and brush with just a little bit of sauce - you don't want them to burn.
