If you like Pork Chops and I DO!  This brining with the apple juice and sugar makes these so moist. They are the best I have ever had and Dave says the same.


1 cup water
2 cups apple juice
3/4 tbl ground pepper
1/4 cup salt
2/3 cups light brown sugar
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp grill seasoning
2 large bone-in pork chops

Combine first 6 ingredients  (thru red pepper)  in a sauce pan.  Heat mixture to a simmer and sugar is melted.  Pour into a bowl with 2 cups of ice.  When the brine cools add the pork chops and refrigerate at least 4 hours and up to 24 hours.

Pat the chops dry and add to a hot oiled grill or grill pan.  Season each side of the chops with 1/2 tsp grill seasoning - that's it - just seasoning and cook 4-5 minutes on a side.  Do not overcook.  Let rest 5 minutes and serve. 

I serve with a cauliflower gratin!!!
