      Meanwhile, make the glaze. Reduce the ginger ale, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar and chopped rosemary leaves on the stovetop over medium-low heat until it thickens to the point that it can coat the back of a spoon but still be pourable (about 15 to 20 minutes). Keep the glaze warm while the pork rib chops finish smoking.
    • 5

      Remove the pork rib chops and increase the Traeger temperature to 500℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

      Flip the pork rib chops and baste with the glaze. Cook 5 more minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145℉ on an instant-read thermometer. Remove from the Traeger, let rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
