Smoky pork knuckles from the smoker

Preparing tasty pork shanks from the smoker is easier than you think. With our simple recipe, you’ll conjure up juicy and smoky knuckles from the grill.



  1. Wash the pork shanks thoroughly and pat dry with kitchen paper.
  2. Brush the shanks with olive oil and then rub with Helvetic Barbeque Sauguät Rub on all sides. For a more intense flavor development, leave the spice mixture to soak overnight.
  3. Preheat the smoker to a temperature of about 120-140°C.
  4. Place the marinated pork shanks on the grate of the smoker and close the lid.
  5. Gently smoke the shanks for about 4-6 hours until they develop a nice smoky crust and the meat is tender and juicy.
  6. After the shanks have reached the core temperature of about 95°C, carefully remove them from the smoker and let them rest for 10min.
  7. Serve the smoky pork shanks with your choice of side dishes such as sauerkraut, roasted potatoes or a crusty baguette.
