Sweet Tea Grilled Pork Chops
Yield 4 servings


2 cups Sweet Tea
1/4 cup kosher salt
1 teaspoon red pepper flake
4 12 ounce bone-in pork loin chops, approximately 1 inch thick


  1. Combine the sweet tea, salt and red pepper flake in a gallon sized zip-top bag. Add the pork chops and brine the chops for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  2. Heat a gas grill to high, or ignite a chimney starter’s worth of lump charcoal for a kettle grill and wait until the coals are ash-white to dump them into the grill.
  3. Remove chops from the brine, rinse and pat dry.
  4. Set the chops on the grill and cook covered for 4 minutes. Rotate the chops 45 degrees, cover, and grill for another 4 minutes. Flip the chops, cover, and grill for 4 more minutes. Rotate the chops 45 degrees and cook for a final 5 minutes.
  5. Take the chops’ temperature in the thickest part of the meat close to the bone. They should reach an internal temperature of 140˚ F for medium. For well done chops, decrease the heat to low (or move away from direct heat if using charcoal) and continue cooking. Rest for at least 5 minutes before serving.
