Smoked Pork Chops on the Grill!

Smoked Pork Chops!

Summer is here and at our house that means grilling several nights a week! We love to try new recipes and products on our grill. Thanks to Cave Tools we recently had the chance to try and review their Smoker Box! My husband has been asking for a smoker for some years now but we just haven't got around to purchasing one.
