Smoked Pork Steaks Recipe

This Smoked Pork Steak Recipe will have your taste buds watering and your tummy in heaven! I know smoking big foods like turkey, briskets, roasts, and such is amazing, but smoking smaller cuts of meat is tasty, too. There’s nothing quite as tasty as a smoked pork chop dinner! Smoking your pork chops may take longer than just grilling them, but this simple recipe is worth the effort.

I pick up pork steaks all the time at the grocery store but these were pork steaks from the local butcher. I just couldn’t resist the marbling. Beautiful. These are thinner than what I normally get for pork steaks or pork chops so if you use thick-cut pork you will need to increase your smoke time. These smoked pork steaks are in an electric smoker but they can also be made in a Traeger as well.

Whether you use wood chips or pellets to smoke your pork is your choice – the flavor will be different depending on what you choose. I know people that love to use pecan wood chips with pork. It gives it a more “Southern style” flavor.

Pork Chops-Pork Steaks, Boneless pork chops or bone-in poke chops will work, too, but I think they have better flavor with the bone.

Olive Oil

Johnny’s Seasoning Salt

Garlic Salt

Pretty simple ingredients, right? Now let’s get down to smoking these babies!

how to Season pork steaks:

As with any smoking meat, the longer the rub is on the meat the better, you can put it back in the fridge for a day or two after rubbing the meat with spices.

Use a brush or a large bowl to cover your pork in olive oil. 

Now we have this huge bowl called the Tupperware Mega Bowl.  I laughed when it first showed up in our cabinets because it is so big, but we now use it for everything.  You can also find them on Amazon as well -> here!!

Sprinkle to your taste on your seasonings and mix it all around. The more you use, the stronger the flavor will be. I like mine a little on the stronger side.

Allow this to marinate for at least a couple of hours before smoking if you aren’t waiting a couple of days.

I just rub in the seasonings, cover the bowl, and put it back into the fridge to do its thing. If you don’t have room in the fridge for a big bowl, a Ziplock bag works just as well.

How To Smoke Pork Steaks

Preheat your smoker and get good smoke going, I brought mine up to 220 degrees and held that temperature for the whole smoke.

Spray your smoker rack with a nonstick spray. This is important because you don’t want the meat to stick on there and then you have to do extra cleanup later.

Place your pork chops on the rack and put the rack in the smoker when the smoker is ready.

Smoke your pork chops for about 2 hours until they reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees with a meat thermometer. Like I said before, the time may be a little different depending on the thickness of your meat.

Because smoking is indirect heat, you’ll want to make sure they are fully cooked.

Some people say that pork is great at an internal temperature of 145 degrees, but I’m extra careful with the cooking process because of the kids. I always check meat temperature with this food thermometer.

How To store Smoked Pork steaks

Store leftover Pork steaks in a ziploc or air-tight container for up to five days after smoking. You can freeze them for up to 90 days after making them.

Storing leftovers properly requires the right tools! My preferred storage method is if the leftovers can be sealed in a food saver. If not, then an air-tight container or Ziploc bag for the fridge is the way I go. The air-tight container and a freezer Ziploc bag are the next best bet for freezing the leftovers. I also use a food scale to measure portions into serving sizes.
