Mustard brined pork chops

Standard

This is an Alton Brown recipe that I made.  very good

for the brine

3/4 cup Kosher salt (must be kosher salt)
1 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp black peppercorns
1 tbsp mustard powder
2 cups apple cider vinegar
ice

4-6 thick pork chops

Heat the vinegar until boiling and add the rest of the ingredients except the ice
stir until dissolved and let sit 20 minutes
pour the brine into a large plastic bowl and add 4-5 handfuls of ice. you want to cool the brine until its cold. if needed use more ice. let the ice melt

Put the pork chops into the brine making sure they are covered by the brine. cover the bowl and refrigerate 2 hours (no more than 2)
cook your favorite way ( i grill mine 8 minutes a side)
