Pork Chops Seared on the Recteq

2/22/2024 – Seared 5 ½-inch thick, large bone-in pork chops on the Recteq Searing Grates. They turned out good.

  • Preheated recteq to 400ºF with a Sear Kit on the right side of the grill.
  • The chops had been dry brined several days ago. Seasoned them with 6POGS on one side and Creole Seasoning on the other.
  • Sear pork chop for 10 minutes per side.
  • Allowed to rest for 10 minutes before serving.

Next Time – Preheat to 450 for thin chops and let it go for 10 minutes or more once it reaches temp to be sure the grates are also hot so there are darker sear marks as opposed to indentions with little color.

This follows a Recteq recipe for “thick” chops where the smoker was preheated to 500° and grilled on each side for 6 minutes each to an IT of 140°.
