Fall Grilling - Grilled Pork Chops with Apple-Cranberry Glaze
1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
1 tablespoon sugar
2 cups apple cider
2 cups water
6 allspice berries (dry spice)
1/2 bay leaf
1/2 tablespoon thyme leaves (dry spice)
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic (dry spice)
1/16 teaspoon red pepper
2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
6 bone-in pork chops or boneless loin chops, (1-inch thick)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup apple sauce
1/2 cup cranberry sauce
1/2 cup maple syrup
Mix brine ingredients and stir well. Place chops in brine and refrigerate for 12–24 hours.
In a small pan, add sauce ingredients and mix well. Heat until mixture is warm. Reserve 1/2 cup of sauce for plating.
Build a charcoal fire for direct grilling. Grill chops directly over coals (approximately 450°F) for 8 minutes on each side. During the last 3 minutes of cooking, baste both sides of the chops well with sauce. Internal temperature of chops should reach 150–155°F prior to removing from grill.
Drizzle reserve sauce over chops when serving, or serve warm on the side.
