Expert Tips

  • Choosing Pork Steaks – A pork steak is a pork butt sliced into 1/2-¾ inch thick slices.  Your butcher should be able to prepare these for you. 
  • Wood Chips – We smoke the pork steaks in different types of wood chips. You can use pecan, oak and hickory or a combination of both for added flavor.
  • Seasoning – Make sure to not skip the step with refrigerating the pork steaks with the salt. As this helps with the texture and flavor of the steaks.
  • Room Temperature – Allow the steaks to come to room temperature before adding the mustard and dry rub.
