Traeger Smoked Pork Chops

These Traeger Pork Chops are truly incredible! Whether you’re planning a leisurely Saturday lunch or a festive Sunday family dinner, these chops are the perfect choice. Let the Traeger work its magic while you sit back and relax. While we recommend using a Chipotle Garlic rub to season the meat, feel free to use your favorite rub for a personalized touch.

Gone are the days when pork chops were overcooked and dry. According to the USDA, pork can be safely eaten at 145°F. Some chefs even prefer pulling the chops off at 135°F, allowing them to rest and reach a temperature of 140°F. Don’t worry if there’s a slight pink hue in the middle, especially after a flavorful smoke.
