Smoked mojo pork chops- Weekly update August 24

Friends for Jeff Spiegelman,


Things are really getting exciting in and around Delaware I suppose you have seen all the signs up in the 11th District. Or, as we say, just follow the “Yellow Sign Road”.


-We have been getting in a lot of door knocking and we could really use some help. If you are interested in helping us out by going door to door, conducting surveys, or driving, please let us know by emailing Samantha at


-Please go to our website for a calendar of upcoming events and when we are going to be door knocking.


-Last week, I had two back-to-school breakfasts for Smyrna and CR school districts. We also had two free meetings with constituents at Mamie Warren Senior Center and Painted Stave Distilling. Thursday night was the grand re-opening of the beautiful Townsend Elementary School. Today was the Hartly Fire Co.’s back-to-school breakfast.


-Thursday evening I am presenting a Legislative Wrap-up at the Delmarva Sportsman Association in Sudlersville.


-We have a couple of BIG events coming up this weekend. Saturday is another Summer BBQ at the Townsend Fire Hall. Saturday afternoon at 3pm we are participating in the annual MOT Big Ball Tournament. To pledge for our team, please go to All money goes to families in need in the MOT area. This is a great cause!


-If you are interested in playing on our Big Ball Team, please email Samantha at or go to our Facebook event page at We play for an hour. It is just for fun and it is a BLAST! I look forward to it every year.


-Mark your calendars. Our next fundraiser is scheduled for September 20th at Harvest Ridge Winery.

Smoked Mojo Pork Chop

-5 or 6 bone in pork chops

-2 cups mojo marinade

-6 steamed tomatillos

-1 medium onion

-2 garlic cloves

-1 tablespoon freshly ground cumin

-salt and pepper to taste


Combine all ingredients except the chops in a food processor and chop. Use this to marinate the chops overnight. Grill over indirect heat on a charcoal grill. Liberally add wood chips in order to keep up a nice smoke. Meanwhile, bring the marinade to a boil and cook down until more sauce-like. Use as a gravy.
