Smoked Pork Steaks

If you are looking for the perfect thing to cook in the smoker, look no further than smoked pork steaks. Dry brined, seasoned with my original rub (purchase recipes here) and then smoked for about 2.5 hours. Glazing with my barbecue sauce (purchase recipes here) is optional but highly recommended.
