Marinated Pork Chops

Marinated Pork Chops

Though marinated pork chops may seem like an ordinary recipe, these chops are anything but. Marinated in soy and lemon sauce for several hours, you’ll be amazed by the rich flavor.

When smoking these chops, Chris recommends hickory, fruitwood, or maple for just the right flavor. You can use bone-in or boneless chops, depending on your preference.

This is just one recipe Chris shares in his book FIRE & SMOKE: A Pitmaster’s Secrets
