Stuffed Pork Chops

Found an interesting item at Sams Club last time we were there and as soon as I seen it I knew it was something I wanted with pork chops. Here goes stuffed pork chops!!

Main players - pork chops, bacon, white wine artichoke tapenade, and white cheddar cheese. The tapenade is a mixture of artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, green olives, kalamata olives, garlic, olive oil, capers, wine and spices. Amazing flavor combination and endless possibilities.

Cut a slit in the pork chop for stuffing...

All stuffed...

Seasoned with BP Sweet Money and will be wrapped in bacon...

Onto the yoder getting a little smoke action from the tube smoker as well. Smoking with a combination of hickory and apple pellets. Also added a hash brown casserole as a side dish.

Ready to eat! Stuffed pork chop, hash brown casserole, and cheesy vegetables made for a great combination!!

Close up - flavors were outstanding!!

Eye of Round Roast with Sour Cream & Onion Mash, & Roast Corn.

One of the things I love about BBQ is being able to take a cheap cut of meat, some humble side ingredients, and turn them into something delicious.

The wife was in the mood for beef.

Enter the Eye of Round Roast; relatively inexpensive, lean, but a chance for some good beef flavor, and if cooked right, not bad as far as tenderness goes.

The Mrs. picked up a couple that were just over 2 lbs each. I slathered them with some spicy brown mustard & a sprinkling of Jallelujah! Can I get an Amen? ;)

Black Walnut smoke - so good for beef.

About half way through we tossed on some roasting ears.

Now, enter the humble russet potato... whipped up into a rustic batch of skin-on sour cream & green onion mashed potatoes topped with cheddar & bacon, then onto the MAK to catch some smoke.

You know what else is in them taters? A lot of YUM, that's what!

Roasts pulled at about 132° I.T. Time for a nice rest.

The 15- 20 minute rest really helps these roasts relax so they're tender when served.

Simple, humble, full of flavor... what I love about BBQ!

I hope you enjoy!
