  • 2 Pork steaks At least 1/2 inch thick
  • 2 tbsp Pork dry rub See Recipe Notes for Dry Rub Recipe
  • 2 tbsp Head Country barbecue sauce


  • Season each pork steak with 1 tbsp of the dry rub.
  • Let the dry rub soak into the meat for 15 minutes while you prepare the grill.
  • Light a smoker tube filled with hickory pellets and place the smoker tube on the grill.
  • Put the pork steaks on a cold grill with the smoker tube and let them smoke for 1 hour.
  • Remove the smoker tube from the grill.
  • Turn the grill to High Heat and grill the pork steaks to an internal temperature of 145F (15 min)
  • Glaze with Head Country barbecue sauce and serve.


You will be grilling at high heat so your dry rub needs to be low in sugar to prevent scorching.
