Mmmmm! This looks so tasty! Nothing is better than some smoked pork tenderloin. My family for some reason doesn't seem to like it as much as me but I will try this recipe instead of mine and maybe they will like it! :) Thanks for the recipe and I will let you know what they think of it. Bob from

I made pork chops before my Red Cross appointment ,I baked them in the oven on 350 degrees in a glass rectangular dish . I cooked them for about 45 minutes and they were done.I spray the dish with butter first and spray the pork chops thinly and evenly ,I add lite salt to taste and pepper.I think they're easy and very good. The thicker the pork chop the longer it takes to cook thoroughly.
