Preparation Directions:

Wash all tools prior to use
Clean and sanitize all cutting boards and prep surfaces prior to use
Read all manufacturer’s instructions before using grills, starters and any cooking tools
Remove Pork Loin from fridge and from packaging, place into a pan and allow to rest at room temp for 10 minutes
In a small bowl, mix the Oink and Rub-A-Dub seasonings together
Cut the pork loin into 6-7 equal sized, thick chops.
** Chefs Tip – I don’t trim any of the fat off, I use that to help protect the chops and add moisture and flavor.  You can trim it off if desired
Using a thin blade boning knife carefully make a small opening into the center of the pork chop and then make a pocket for the stuffing.  *** Chefs Tip:  Keep the opening small to help hold the stuffing in
Load about ¼ cup stuffing into each pork chop
Coat both sides of Pork Chops with oil, if needed (check pork chops for surface moisture to determine if you need a binder)
Season all sides of the pork chops with the Rub-A-Dub/Oink mixture
Let rest on plate while Big Green Egg reaches temp
To Light Your Big Green Egg…
Stir charcoal in the Big Green Egg and Top off with Fresh Charcoal, move charcoal pile to one side to create that Dual Zone or Indirect Setup

Burb Big Green Egg and Open dome
Add the pork chops to the left side of the Egg (indirect side) onto the grill grate
