I cured a few pork chops the other day using tenderquick and turbinado sugar....I just let them cure for 3 hours, rinsed and stuffed.

The cured chops...

Then made a stuffing using some jalapeno cornbread. The cornbread already has jalapenos, onions and whole corn, so I just added a few seasonings, butter and a bit of chicken broth to keep it moist.

The chops... locked and loaded....and seasoned with cracked black pepper.

Onto the drum...I used a mix of apple and olive wood.

The chop stuffed with jalapeno cornbread stuffing, some turnip greens, salad and a couple of fried green tomatoes.

Nice looking meal there, Jeanie...
Were the chops sweet because of the sugar? If they were, did the heat of the japs, balance out the sweetness?
I'd love to try that!

Great looking spread. I'm new, so may I ask what does the cure do and why? I make stuffed chops quite often. Thankyou for the recipe and pictures.

Thanks everybody... They were kinda tasty!

Joneser, they aren't sweet. I just used the morton's tenderquick method of curing them.... but smoked them instead of frying or baking.

Works good on chicken pieces too. :)

Bill, I hope you give the cure method a try sometime...if you leave them too long they will be salty though.

Al...it's cold down here, could you block that cold north wind for me please? lol

Thanks again folks!
