Yumm!! These are easily the best pork chops I've ever made. I think it is tribute to the brine! I used 8 center cut pork chops - I put them in the brine for about 3 hours. I doubled the Cocoa and Brown sugar in the rub(2T ea), and next time would cut the ancho down to 1/2 T (spicy). Allowing the chops to finish cooking on the cool side of the grill is the key - these were very juicy and delicious. My whole family loved them - definatley a keeper.

These pork chops were extremely disappointing. I followed the recipe exactly. You end up with semi-flavorful pork chops. I don't know HOW with all the spice in here, but I was really expecting something more. I would not make these again unless I could figure out a way to really kick up the flavor level.
