If you’ve been following The Typical Mom for very long you know we love easy smoker recipes and add to it often. These smoked pork steaks with a dry rub were our latest creation. They came out SO good! We added some corn to the bottom rack which we’ll share later but when we opened it up everything was done to perfection. (affiliate links present)

  • We started with these smoked bacon wrapped pork chops and moved to steaks. I honestly hadn’t tried a pork steak recipe before and I am not a steak fan in general.

I will have to admit my husband’s pork dry rub recipe it takes it to a whole new level.

They’re part of our electric smoker recipes round up but have been made in a pellet grill too.

This is what our smoked pork steaks looked like when they were done.

You do not need any sauce, the rub has tons of flavor and with the smoke flavor it’s just…..yum!!

If you haven’t tried smoking meats before it is quite easy and you can really do it all year but we do it most during the summertime.

The only thing you might need to adjust would be the timing. Depending on the size and thickness of your pork steaks it will vary slightly but we’ve made this several times and 90 minutes seems to be quite right to reach the necessary internal temperature for pork and not have it overdone.

I might check after 70 minutes or so if yours are a bit thinner and gage how much longer they might need.

  • Allow your smoked pork steaks to rest at least 5 minutes after taking them out. This is important too to lock in the juices before cutting.

Here is a spicier dry rub for pork you could use rather than the one below. This and our tri tip dry rub are both really good.

  • Wood chips or pellets for smoker
    • we like using apple for this
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp powdered sriracha – I found this one which is great since it’s dry
  • 1/4 c salt

Barbecue sauce if you want to make bbq pork steaks.

Tips when cooking pork:

  • Don’t overcook it, nobody likes dry pork
  • Always check the internal temperature before serving. Follow guidelines in meat smoker printable below.
  • Place directly on your grill grate to get nice marks on the outsides
  • Cook time depends on how thick your pieces are
  • After you remove the pork steaks allow them to rest so they stay juicy inside
  • Cooking pork in a pressure cooker or air fryer pork steak is a fabulous way to get it tender too

  • Mix all spices together in a bowl breaking up any lumps so everything is combined well.
  • Preheat smoker to 275 degrees and add wood chips.
  • Massage this pork steak dry rub on the top and bottom of all your pieces of meat.
  • Place pork steaks on top racks of smoker so they are not overlapping.
  • Close door and allow to cook for approx 90 minutes, depending on how thick they are there may be a slight variance of time but just ensure when done that it reaches at least 180 degrees in the middle to be safe.
  • Allow to rest on cutting board for at least 5 minutes once taken out before slicing.
