Boneless pork chops
« on: March 17, 2022, 12:33:41 AM »
So I only have two smokes under my belt and learning as I go.  With the price of meat now Im still unsure of using pricier cuts. So I smoked 6 boneless chops tonight using the Auber on my analog #2.  2 1/2 hours in Auber said they were at 143. Got them in the house and they were actually at 134. I had already turned off smoker and left door open for cleaning so I put them in the air fryer to finish up and OH MY!!!!!! They have been the best thing Iíve smoked so far. Used sugar maple with apple juice inside cabinet. I was worried they would be dry but far from it.  I guess I need to search to find out how to fix the Auber now.

That is why I keep an instant read thermometer to check the meat temp before I pull product from smoker.

Yep. I just assumed that the Auber was correct but next time I will be taking the digital out with me and doing a double check

Always good to calibrate or check your thermometers with ice water and boiling water.  Just be aware that you level above sea can produce a boiling temp different than the standard 212 degrees.

Good idea sarge.  I live in Indiana. Do you think the boiling temp will be accurate?

You can look up your town elevation where you live and then check this chart below:
