Elevating Pork Chops to New Heights

Prepare to be amazed by the incredible flavor and juiciness of our Traeger smoked pork chops. Whether you’re hosting a weekend BBQ or a cozy Sunday family dinner, these chops are a guaranteed hit. Let the Traeger work its magic as the chipotle garlic rub infuses the meat with irresistible flavors. And if chipotle isn’t your thing, feel free to use your favorite rub instead. The possibilities are endless!

A Game-Changer for Pork Chops

Gone are the days of overcooking pork chops to oblivion. Contrary to popular belief, pork can be safely eaten at 145°F, according to the USDA. Many chefs even recommend pulling it off the grill at around 135°F to let it rest and reach a perfect 140°F. Don’t be afraid if the meat appears slightly pink in the center, especially after being smoked. It’s the mark of a delectable and juicy pork chop!
