  • 6 3.3 lbs (1.5 kg) pork rib chops, about an inch thick
Spice Rub
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground mustard
  • 1/2 tsp old bay seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  1. In a small bowl, mix all the spices together. Note, you may need to press down the brown sugar with the back of a spoon to remove lumps.

  2. Coat the pork rib chops with the spice mixture. Make sure to be generous with the spices on the top, bottom and sides of the chops.

  3. Place the chops on a dish, cover (cling wrap or aluminum foil) and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours.

  4. Start up the smoker according to your manufacturer's instructions and raise the temperature to around 225 ºF.

  5. Start your smoke. We used mesquite wood for this recipe. Feel free to use your favourite wood.

Recipe Notes

We aimed for an internal temperature of 150 ºF, feel free to cook them longer if you like your pork well done. 

We use a digital smoker thermometer to make sure the desired internal temperature is spot on.
