Marinated Pork Chops

Marinated Pork Chops

5 1 5 1

Though marinated pork chops may seem like an ordinary recipe, these chops are anything but. Marinated in a 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

Ingredients

1/2 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup peanut oil

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tablespoon dark brown sugar

2 teaspoons chili powder

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

4 (3/4-inch-thick) bone-in pork chops or boneless loin chops

Equipment

hickory, fruitwood, or maple wood

Recipe Directions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, oil, lemon juice, garlic, sugar, chili powder, and pepper.

  2. Put the pork chops in a plastic ziptop bag and pour in the marinade. Marinate the pork chops for 2 to 4 hours.

  3. Build a charcoal fire for direct grilling. Preheat it to 450 degrees F (232 degrees C).

  4. Grill the pork chops over direct heat until the internal temperature is 145 to 150 degrees F (63 to 66 degrees C), 6 to 7 minutes on each side.

  5. Remove the chops from the grill and let them rest for 5 minutes before serving.

This is a great marinate. We cook chops on the grill all the time in various ways and this recipe will definitely be one of our regulars. Thanks, Chris
