  • 1/2 Cup Mustard

  • 1/2 Cup apple juice

  • 1 Cup Traeger 'Que BBQ Sauce

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 180°F and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Super Smoke, if available.

    Slather the pork steaks on all sides with the mustard and season with Traeger Pork & Poultry Rub (the mustard will keep the pork moist, but the flavor is unnoticeable once cooked).
