Beer Brined Grilled Pork Chops by Ray Sheehan

  

January 22, 2018

This pork recipe was submitted to us by our new friend Ray Sheehan over at BBQ Buddha. Ray makes some world class BBQ sauces and rubs and he was kind enough to set us with some samples along with this fine recipe featuring brined pork chops. When you brine a piece of meat, especially a lean cut, you are able impart flavor and moisture. The use of dark beer and molasses gives this recipe a nice nutty flavor and amber color. We recommend brining for at least 8-12 hours for maximum flavor.

  • Prep: 12 hrs
  • Cook: 20 mins
  • Yields: 6 Pork Chops

Ingredients

The Brine:

2 Cups Water

2 Cups Dark Lager Beer

1/4 Cup Coarse Salt

1/4 Cup Dark Brown Sugar

1/4 Cup Molasses

For the Chops:

6 Bone in Center Cut Pork Chops

6 Garlic cloves minced

2 tsp Black Pepper

2 tsp Salt

2 tsp Dried Sage leaves

½ tsp Dried Thyme

Directions

1Combine 2C. water, Beer, 1/4C. salt, sugar, and molasses in a large bowl. Stir until salt and sugar dissolve. Place chops in a resealable plastic bag. Pour brine over chops. Seal bag, refrigerate 4 to 12 hours, turning occasionally.

2Prepare barbecue to medium high heat. Remove chops from bag, pat dry.

3In another bowl mix together minced garlic, 2tsp black pepper, 2tsp salt,2tsp dried sage, and ½ tsp dried thyme. Rub this garlic mixture onto both sides of the chops.

4Grill pork chops until an instant read thermometer registers 145 to 150 degrees, about 8-10 minutes per side.

5Remove chops from grill. Let rest for 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

  1. The chops can be any thickness you like. You are cooking to temperature not really by time. With a pellet grill and GrillGrates you almost always want your thermostat as hot as it will go.

Need some inspiration? Our buddy Paul Sidoriak has a new book out that concentrates on the art of cooking with a griddle. Many of these recipes translate nicely to the flat back side of GrillGrates. Well written and visually stunning this book needs to be in your life! #grillgrateful #griddlegrateful #flippinawesome #bbqfamily #maillardreaction
