Found this recipe online and decided to try it because Hubby loves pork chops but I never have any luck grilling them. The website "guaranteed" that grilled chops soaked in this brine would be Moist and delicious. They were right. My Husband LOVED them, and we both agreed that they were the best grilled pork chops ever.

  1. First of all, the 6 hour cooking time includes brining.
  2. Heat all brine ingredients except ice until salt and sugar are dissolved.Remove from heat and add ice to cool to below 90 degrees.
  3. Place chops in Large Zipper storage bag or non reactive bowl, Add cooled brine. Brine for 2-8 hours in the refrigerator.
