    Set your grill for indirect heat. Pre-heat to high.Brush grill grate with oil...Drain pork chops and pat dry. Brush with oil on both sides. I add hickory chips soaked in the left over brine to the charcol. Put Pork chops on grill away from derict heat and grill with smoke for abought 20 minutes covered. After 20 minutin, move chops over high heat and grill abought 4 minutes per side more.Remove from grill and let rest 4-5 min. serve with a baked potato.
