Refrigerate the pork chops in the brine mixture for at least one hour before cooking. When you are ready to cook them, pat the pork chops dry with a paper towel. Apply the spice rub equally on one side of each pork chop.


Cook the pork chops on a hot gas or charcoal grill for 5 minutes on each side. Allow the pork chops to sit at room temperature for 5 minutes before serving.
