Santa Maria Smoked Pork Chops Recipe

If you are looking for an easy pork chop recipe where the pork chops are a little spicy, super flavorful, and tender like chicken, this Santa Maria Smoked Pork Chops is the recipe to try.

I’ve been experimenting with my Santa Maria spice rub and learning what works and what doesn’t (so far I haven’t found anything that doesn’t work). This recipe was modeled after the Santa Maria Tri Tip Recipe and turned out just as delicious.

And do what I do and make a big batch of the spice mixture so all you have to do is sprinkle and smoke.


Santa Maria Smoked Pork Chops


  • 4 Pork Chops (bone-in)
  • 1 teaspoon Coarse Sea Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Coarse Black Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dry Mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cumin


Step 1
Mix spices together and then generously sprinkle mixed spices over pork chops. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Step 2
Smoke for 2 hours at 225 degrees.
Step 3
Remove from smoker and wrap with tin foil. Place in a 180 degree warm oven for 30-60 minutes. Remove from oven and serve.
