Marinated Pork Fajitas, wood pellet, grill, BBQ, smoker, recipeMarinated Pork Fajitas

Ken brought home some marinated pork chops. These are thin sliced by Juan Carlos from El Toro our favorite Mexican market. These are awesome, with a 5 minute sear, then slicing them thin and wrapping them in tortillas. The beauty of Fajitas is that there is no right or wrong way to do them. Do them how your family likes them…

Tossing them on our Louisiana Wood Pellet Grill/ Smoker for a flash sear with Pacific Pellets Gourmet BBQ Rancher’s Mesquite pellets made for a quick, really delicious dinner. With a promise of fajitas tonight and burritos, tacos and hot sandwiches during the week this is living. What took the most time was getting the condiments out of the refrigerator.

Marinated Pork Fajitas
A Wood Pellet Grill Recipe

Directions: Marinated Pork Fajitas

In a small lightly greased cast iron skillet sauté onions and sweet peppers until semi-soft. Get all your fixins’ together so when the pork comes off the grill you’ll be ready to roll. Pre- heat the grill and get your grill grates screaming hot at 450 degrees (230c). These chops are thin and will be done in 2 or 3 minutes per side. When grilled to your taste, pull them off the grill, slice thin, and build your Fajitas.

I like to pull these off the grill around 140 degrees (60c), keeping in mind that the meat will continue cooking for another 5 to 10 degrees after you pull it off the grill. U.S.D.A. safe is 145 degrees (62c) for pork. I use a Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer for checking meat temps.

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need to follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees (122c), anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Louisiana, Green Mountain, Royall, Memphis, Traeger wood pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Outdoor Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….
