Made this with chicken and pork chops. I didn't use all the pepper it called for (one of my kids doesn't do spicy). Flavor was great. It's definitely a keeper.

Very good - has a nice spicy kick which we love. I used thick boneless pork chops, which were so moist - thanks to the brining process. I halved the recipe for the pepper-garlic rub -- the rub is very hot & spicy, but perfect for our taste. Would definitely make again.

Wow. Awesome rub! Just the right blend of sweet, salt and spice. Definitely a keeper.

Wow, these chops were amazing. I've never brined anything before and they were the most tender chops I've ever had. I accidentally went a little overboard with the rub so they were spicy - too spicy for DD. But I definitely would make them again - so good, especially on our Traeger grill with hickory pellets! I served it with parmesean orzo (also from Cooking Light) and grilled asparagus.
