Ingredients
  

  • 1 gallon water
  • 1/3 cup salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 pork chops
  • 1/4 cup pork bbq seasoning

Instructions
 

  • For the Brine: Dissolve the salt and sugar in 1 gallon of water. Once dissolved, place the chops in the brine and refrigerate overnight. Make sure chops are fully submerged weighing it down if necessary.
  • When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 225℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. 
  • While the grill preheats, remove the chops from the brine, pat dry and rub with bbq seasoning  
  • Place chops directly on the grill grate and smoke for 2 hours or until an instant-read thermometer reads 145℉ when inserted into the middle of the chop. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Notes

  • You do not have to brine the chops but I think it adds to the juiciness
  • Use your favorite bbq seasoning powder - I like Historic BBQ Red for Pork and Poultry
  • Always take your pork off between 140-145 degrees - it will heat to 145 and is safe to eat with a blush of pink
