These were so juicy and flavorful. I ended up using maple syrup instead of molasses and thyme instead of sage in the final garlic rub but it worked out really well. My husband loved them and so did I! Thanks for a delicious brine and the great idea of a final rub before cooking.

This was so good! I made it gluten free by subbing Redbridge sorghum beer then marinated for 8 hours. It's still not grilling season, either, so the broiler was put to very good use! I will definitely make this again!

A little time consuming but very worth it. My first time to brine and I definetely will make this recipe again. My husband thinks this is the best way to cook pork chops now. Thanks again for sharing.

Wow...This was only the second brining recipe that I've used where the flavor of the brine actually stays with the meat after grilling. It's hard to describe the flavor, but all I can say is that it's SO GOOD and that each flavor comes through without overpowering the others. My husband thought it tasted like a steak, so of course he was happy since he only believes in grilling red meat and doubted that a grilled pork chop could be so tasty! Oh, and I had pork chops that were 3/4" thick and I cooked them for about 8 minutes on each side, which I believe was too long since they dried out a little too much for my preference. I might suggest just 6 minutes on each side, pull them off and check them, and if needed, then throw them back on if they aren't cooked enough. Also, I let the chops marinate for 8 hours...next time I'll do 24 hours and I'm sure they'll just be falling off the bone!!! Thanks again fot sharing!
