  • 4 Pork Chops Bone-in or Boneless
  • 1/2 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 2 Handfulls Apple Wood Chips


  • Mix soy sauce, Olive Oil, and Garlic in a glass container large enough to fit all 4 pork chops.
    Marinated Smoked Pork Chops
  • Add pork chops to the marinade, allow to sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, and not more than 24 hours.  Overnight is best.  Be sure all the pork chops are covered. 
  • Remove marinated pork chops from the refrigerator about 1 hour before cooking.  30 minutes is fine.  You don't want them sitting out too long for health's sake, but you don't want to grill cold pork chops.
  • Soak the apple wood chips in water for about 1 hour.  These can start soaking at about the same time you remove the pork chops from the fridge.
    Apple wood chips for smoking
  • See smoker box or charcoal wood chips smoking instructions below. These are the wood chips I use.
  • Grill the pork chops until cooked through.  I prefer my pork chops done at about medium, 155 - 160 degrees.  This requires about 15 minutes, 7 minutes a side.  This is very dependent upon the size of the pork chops and heat of the grill.
