    Duroc Pork Chops in an Offset Smoker

    Esteemed pit masters, I cooked up one of my favorites: 5 Pork chops, no, make that 5 Duroc Pork Chops in my offset smoker. I absolutely loooove cooking them altogether, makes for an insanely juicy end result. Plus, oak wood is basically the royal treatment for these bad boys. I applied my Fish Bait Rub which is herbacious, based on Lime pepper. Pork loves citrus after all.

    There was a glorious fat cap, but no skin. I applied a dry brine early in the morning. I then applied a rub in the afternoon. I fired up my offset smoker 'Rude Boy' and ran it at 250-260° F. The cook took a little longer than I expected, 1:30-1:40 hours, but it was worth it in the end. All smoke, no sear, as it looked so dang good. Target temp: 62° C / 144° F.

    When I carved them up they were just dripping with moisture, and the flavor was out of this world. Did I say I love pork?!


    Here's the raw meat. Check out that fat cap!

          Yes of course. I’m shipping, but COVID is completely wreaking havoc with all planning. Hopefully they will be available soon again.

          Henrik Thanks. Yes shipping is way slow these days. Like a trip back to the 50's

            If it were me: I would have made cracklings out of it. But, it was out of my hands. I did the best I could.

          That looks great.

          Both my parents were raised on farms in the '20s - '30s. Back then everything was cooked well done. I was an adult before I had anything cooked less than well done. Whatever meat I ate was so dry it sucked the moisture right out of my tongue.

          Henrik Those look amazing!! I just had a Duroc hog taken to our butcher last Monday and can’t wait for the meat! Several of our local 4H kids raise this heritage breed for showing at events so I can get these pretty much all year!

            Thank you my man! You’re the one who led me on to Duroc!

          Henrik between you and Troutman doing these cooks you do I should be having my first stroke any moment now, but it'll be worth it....
          Really nice job on those chops, I'd be all over those.

            Well, as long as it’s worth it 😉. On a more serious note, I’d hate to see that happening. At least without tasting the real product 😉

            Superb, Henrik! We have a local specialty meat shop here (don't know yet if they are actually butchers) who tells me they carry Duroc. I've been resisting because of the price but you have convinced me I have to go for it, at least once. Thanks.

            But I'd have to look at the fat cap first.
