The secret to moist and delicious pork chops is to first brine or soak them in a mixture of water, apple cider, maple syrup and salt.
For the Brine, pour cold water, apple cider and syrup into large plastic or glass container, or 2-gallon resealable plastic bag. Stir in salt until dissolved. Place pork chops in brine to cover. If necessary, place a plate on top of pork chops to keep them submerged. Cover container or seal bag.
Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Remove pork chops from brine. Discard remaining brine. Rinse pork chops under cool running water. Pat dry. Brush pork chops lightly with oil. Rub with Pork Rub.
Grill over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes per side or until pork is desired doneness.
To prepare Brine without apple cider and maple syrup, increase water to 8 cups and add 1/2 cup sugar. Stir until sugar and salt are dissolved.
