  • Remove pork chops from brine; discard brine. Let pork stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Light 1 side of grill, heating to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat; leave other side unlit. Brush pork with 1 Tbsp. oil, and sprinkle with desired amount of salt and pepper.

  • Place pork over lit side, and grill, covered with grill lid, 4 minutes on each side. Transfer pork to unlit side, and grill, covered with grill lid, 8 to 10 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 150°. Let stand 5 minutes. Arrange pork on a serving platter, and top with Blueberry-Peach Salsa.
