  • 6 pork chops, each at least 1/2-inch thick
  • 1/4 cup(s) fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt (kosher or sea)
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or cilantro
  • Traeger Pork and Poultry Rub, or salt and pepper

Preperation Steps
  • Make the vinaigrette: In a small mixing bowl, combine the lime juice, orange juice, honey, garlic, salt, and red pepper flakes. Whisk in the olive oil until an emulsion forms. Stir in the parsley.
  • When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes).
  • Season the pork chops on both sides with the Traeger Pork and Poultry Rub.
  • Arrange the pork chops on the grill grate and smoke for 30 minutes. Increase the heat to 300 degrees F (Medium) and continue to cook the chops until they reach an internal temperature of 145 to 160 degrees F, about 30 minutes. Arrange the chops on a platter or plates and pour some of the vinaigrette over the chops. Serve the remaining vinaigrette on the side.
