Inside: Keep reading to find out how to make delicious smoked pork chops on a wood pellet grill.
In the couple of years since we purchased our first wood pellet smoker from Traeger, we have made a lot of different recipes! That is because it is so versatile and you can cook pretty much anything that you can cook in the oven.
We prefer the wood pellet smoker over the oven for a lot of recipes because it gives the food a great smoky flavor that you can’t get anywhere else. We have made brisket, ribs, nachos, pulled pork, cherry cobbler, pizza, and more! Today, however, I am going to show you a simple and delicious way to grill pork chops on your wood pellet grill.
Which Wood Pellet Grill Should You Buy?
Our current favorite smoker is the Timberline 1300 from Traeger. It is big enough for just about anything we can cook and has all of the newest features. For example, it has the Traeger WiFIRE feature which allows you to control and monitor the temperature of the grill and the food from your smartphone.
It also has an integrated probe and other great features to ensure that your food turns out great everytime. Click here to check out more about the Timberline 1300.
We also have a Traeger Pro 575, and it is also a great option if you aren’t ready to buy the larger Timberline. It also has the WiFIRE feature and more that you will love. It is smaller than the Timberline, but you can still cook a few racks of ribs and plenty of burgers to keep the family happy! Check it out here.
How do you make smoked pork chops on a wood pellet grill?
We bought some delicious bone-in pork chops last week and decided to cook them up on the Timberline 1300. You won’t believe how simple it was, but the flavor we got out of it was amazing.
The process is simple – first, you will generously apply your favorite rub to each pork chop. I used Traeger’s Blackened Saskatchewan Dry Rub. It has a bit of a kick but is seriously so good! Check it out here.
Then, you preheat your grill to 450 degrees and add the pork chops.
Cook for about 30 minute, flipping half way through. The pork chops should be cooked to 140-145 degrees at that point which makes for a juicy pork chop that everyone will love.
How to serve smoked pork chops.
The most common way to serve smoked pork chops is on the bone and with some side dishes. However, I like to slice it into fairly thin slices and use for tacos and even a sandwich. That said, you can keep it whole and serve it with your favorite side dishes like coleslaw or potato salad and you will be happy for sure.
You can also serve it with barbecue sauce or steak sauce if you like to have a little added flavor, but honestly, these chops are juicy and flavorful enough that you may not want to add anything. We have made this multiple times lately and it is always a hit!
This recipe is definitely going into our rotation, and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
