Pork is so good at absorbing flavors such as smoke and BBQ that when properly prepared, it can produce some of the most versatile, tender, tasty treats anywhere.

Pork steaks are pork shoulder, just cut into steak form. Simple enough, right? And there are very few things in life better than smoked BBQ pork steaks grilled on the Char-Broil® Commercial Series TRU-Infrared™ T-47D 4-Burner Gas Grill.

  1. I’m going to make my own dry rub 5o rub my pork steaks with.
    I just want to know how long to smoke on my electric smoker?

    1. Hi Terry, for an electric smoker you would want to cook the pork steaks for around 1 1/2 hours at 225F, then wrap in foil and cook for another 1 hour, then remove from foil and cook for another 10-15 minutes. Make sure the pork steaks have an internal temperature of 165F before serving.
