Best thick pork chops

Best thick pork chops (rib chops) Simple brine, 1/2 c kosher salt, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2-3 cups water...brine the chops a few hours (zip lock gallon bag is perfect). Pat dry, coffee rub ( my change of Little Chef) and cook 'em hot and fast. preferred internal here would be to pull at 130-135* tops...carryover during the rest will bring them to 140-145* +/-. Keep it simple! Just don't cook 'em to death!! This is from a post by Little Chef. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

    Those look real good.  how much saltiness / sweetness do they get from the brine?

    ALERT!  THREAD REVIVAL!
    When I brined bone-in  porterhouse pork chops last week, I found that the tenderloin side was too salty.  We actually preferred the strip side.  Is there a happy medium for brine time?  I went 3 hours.  Maybe 2 is enough.

    I only went 2 hrs but bet an hour might be enough as lots do 30 to 60 mins.
