Swineapple (Bacon wrapped Smoked Pineapple) with Brown Ale

Phat Smoked Pork Chops

Sriracha..or ศรีราชา to my Thai friends…that magical chili pepper sauce that makes everything spicy and awesome. This smoked pork recipe uses a little (or a ton, depends on your testicular fortitude) of sriracha. Great smoked pork chops require two steps;
