If you’re ready for the ultimate dinner that has tons of flavor and NO sauce, you’ve got to make these smoked bacon wrapped pork chops!
Ok so since we got our smoker a few years ago it has been my husband’s go to way to cook things and I couldn’t be happier! We recently moved to more rural area where it snows and the “thing to do” is stock up on meat throughout the year. So, we gave it a whirl and bought a pig! Needless to say we now have a lot of wonderful organic pork to use and thus this smoked bacon wrapped pork chops recipe was born. It’s one of our favorite electric smoker recipes. (affiliate links present)
Of course you don’t have to have an electric smoker to make smoked bacon wrapped pork chops, any smoker will do.
- This is similar to the one we have just for reference.
- First we made this Instant Pot pulled pork recipe with a pork roast which was amazing and then we moved on to smoking our pig.
I will say that not everything my husband cooks turns out perfect. BUT this and the smoked baked potatoes were perfection!!!
This is what you’ll need to make these smoked bacon wrapped pork chops:
- Pork chops – we made 4 which fed the 5 of us
- Bacon – we used 4 slices per pork chop, thick slices
- Spices – listed below in recipe card
- Wood chips or wood pellets – for electric smokers we use apple chips
- Potatoes – will link recipe when that post is done, you can watch the video on how to make those here
Here’s a video showing you how we make them:
Here’s a picture of when the bacon wrapped pork chops were prepped.
As stated in the recipe card below you follow these steps:
- Mix spices together
- Massage pork dry rub on top and bottom of pork chops
- Wrap slices of bacon width wise on to each pork chop. Secure with toothpicks if you want, we didn’t
- Make smoked baked potatoes as shown here so you can put them in at the same time
- Put into smoker at 275 degrees
- Took approx 1.5 hrs. to be cooked through and reach an internal temperature of at least 145 degrees

- If your smoker doesn’t have a built in digital thermometer you’ll want that too.
Note: Always ensure internal temp of pork is at least 145 degrees. Way to properly check temp is to remove from heat, then test. If it isn’t ready continue cooking until it’s safe to consume.
- Then allow to sit after removing from smoker for 15 minutes before slicing to keep juicy.

Smoked Bacon Wrapped Pork Chops
- 4 pork chops
- 16 slices bacon thicker variety works best
- 1/2 c brown sugar
- 1 tbsp salt we use brand Real Salt
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tbsp chili powder
- 1/2 tbsp paprika
- Mix all spices together in a bowl well.
- Massage the dry rub on each pork chop, on the bottom and top.
- Wrap 4 strips of bacon on each pork chop width wise.
- Fill wood chip container, put into smoker and put pork chops on top racks.
- Close door and cook at 275 degrees for 90 minutes (timing may need to be adjusted depending on how thick your chops and bacon are, I would check after 70 minutes).
- Allow to rest when done on counter for at least 5 minutes so juices stay in meat.
