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.
