Begin by generously seasoning your pork chops with our signature “Date Night Doins Butt Rub.” For a deep “Kiss of Smoke” flavor, smoke the chops for four hours using mesquite. However, if you prefer to skip the smoking step, rest assured that these Smothered Pork Chops will still be some of the best you’ve ever tasted.
In a large cast iron skillet, heat one tablespoon of olive oil. Sear the chops on both sides until they develop a beautiful crust. Remove the chops and set them aside on a platter. In the same skillet, sauté the onions and mushrooms in the remaining oil until they become tender and fragrant. Sprinkle in the flour and continue cooking until it turns golden brown, stirring constantly. Whisk in the beef stock and smoked garlic sauce, and season the mixture with Butcher BBQ Private Seasoning. Allow the sauce to come to a boil and continue stirring until it thickens to your desired consistency. Add the pork chops back into the skillet, ensuring they are fully covered with the flavorful sauce.
Now it’s time to fire up the grill! Cook the chops for approximately 90 minutes at 250°F (122°C) until they reach an internal temperature of 150°F (66°C). Remember, the meat will continue to cook as it rests, so allow for a few extra degrees. For accurate temperature readings, we recommend using a Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer.
Note: When it comes to choosing the pellets for smoking, feel free to experiment with different flavors until you find the combination you love. Just remember to keep the temperature below 250°F (122°C) to ensure adequate smoke absorption.
