    I have been wanting to try my hand at stuffing some pork chops but the only thing that keeps coming to mind for the stuffing is suasage and apple chunks. For some reason I think stuffing pork with pork is weird. Keep in mind I'm going to cook them on my smoker after first searing them over the coals. Any ideas?

    When I hear stuffing I think of something made with moistened bread.  Maybe bread, milk or stock, celery, chicken livers, sausage?

    I really like the rissoto idea. Nvr thought of going with a rice base but would that stand up in the smoker.
