Brined & Grilled Pork Chops


  • In large stockpot, bring water to a boil. Stir in salt, sugar, bay leaf, allspice and peppercorns. Boil, stirring until salt and sugar has dissolved (about 1 minute).
  • Remove from heat; stir in sage, thyme, garlic and ginger. Let cool to room temperature. May be refrigerated until ready to use (up to 2 days).
  • Place pork in a deep container with tight fitting cover; pour enough brine into container to cover meat; tightly seal and refrigerate 8-24 hours.
  • Remove pork chops from brine; discard brine. Lightly rinse pork chops; pat dry.
  • Prepare grill to medium heat. Place pork chops on grill; grill, turning occasionally, until internal temperature reaches 155°F on an instant read thermometer (about 20-40 minutes depending on thickness). Remove from grill and let rest 5 minutes before serving.
