To brine the pork chops

  • Combine all the ingredients into a saucepan over high heat. Cook until the salt and sugar are dissolved.

  • Then remove from the heat and add about 1 pound of ice to cool the brine down. Give it a good stir and set it aside.

How to grill pork chops

  • Spray some oil on your grill pan or grill grates and turn the heat up to medium high.
  • In about 5 minutes when the pan is nice and hot, add your pork chops, making sure to only fit on what you can without any of them touching.
  • Cook times will vary, estimate about 6-7 minutes per side. You can use a instant read thermometer to see if the pork is done. You are looking for at least 160 degrees.
  • Allow pork chops to rest for 5 minutes before cutting into.
