Smoked Bacon Wrapped Pork Chops 2

We recently moved to more rural area where it snows and the “thing to do” is stock up on meat throughout the year. We gave it a whirl recently 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, originally published 6/18)

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!

The one we have at our house is below, 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!!!

Smoked pork chops

  1. Pork chops – we made 4 which fed the 5 of us, one of the best meats to smoke
  2. Bacon – we used 4 slices per pork chop, thick slices
  3. Spices – listed below in recipe card
  4. Wood chips or wood pellets – for electric smokers we use apple chips
    1. our pellet grill takes these
  5. 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:

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 you love using your smoker too here are a few other smoker recipes that we love and others rave about!

If you are obsessed with this cut of meat as we are you can also try this easy baked pork chops recipe and smoked pork steaks some other night! To make more in your smoker you’ll need this meat smoking chart to know what temp and how long to cook each meat.

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. The way to properly check temp is to remove from heat.

Internal Meat Temperature

Here are a few questions you might have before you get started:

How long does it take to smoke pork chops in a smoker?

You always want to ensure it reaches 145 degrees F before eating. This will take approximately 90 minutes total once you place them on your grate.

The biggest variance is going to be two fold, the thickness of your chops and whether you add bacon or not. Adding that extra layer will add a bit more time but SO worth it!

Do pork chops get more tender the longer you cook them?

NO. Keep an eye on them for sure. If these babies are cooked for even 5 minutes too long they will dry out more than you’d like. Moist in the center is what you want with a crust on the outside. Unlike smoked pulled pork where longer is better, chops are more sensitive.

Then test if it’s reached temperature. If it hasn’t, continue cooking until it’s safe to consume.

  • Then allow to sit after removing from smoker for 15 minutes before slicing to keep juicy.

If you’re ready to try something else amazing after this try our bacon and cheese stuffed smoked meatloaf with smoked bread on the side.

Now this could be baked in your oven at 350 degrees until golden brown on top but NO. If you’re like we are and a bit obsessed with smoking meats you know that it’s gotta’ get on that grill. 

  • I will tell you that these easy smoker recipes are a few of our most popular. I am sure you can tell why!
  • Just smother with some barbecue sauce minutes before serving and I guarantee you’ll be the hero for making either one of these.

You can make these bacon wrapped air fryer pork chops and the best oven baked pork chops too! Grilled pork chops are great during the summertime. Air fryer bacon is wonderful too. Here’s the printable recipe for our dry pork rub and smoked bacon wrapped pork chops.

  • 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.

About how thick were your pork chops?


Sunday 24th of May 2020

Did these last night on my Traeger. Cooked boneless chops to an internal temp of 145. Let rest as temp rose to 150. Moist and perfectly white (no pink) meat. Great flavor. Absolutely fantastic. Definitely a keeper.

This was the very first thing I made with my new electric smoker.

It is, by far, the best thing I have ever cooked, with my friends and family loving how good, moist, and flavorful these came out.

Thank you very much.
