Cooking for 2 people


  • 2 8-oz. boneless pork chops
  • 2 tbsp. pork seasoning or rub
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 1 cup ice
  • 12 oz. ginger ale


  • 2 cup cold water
  • .25 cup kosher salt
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tbsp. peppercorns
  • .25 cup peeled fresh ginger chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled

1 Food Prep

Combine your brine ingredients in a saucepan. Bring your mixture to a boil and stir until all of the salt is dissolved. Allow it to cool, then add your ice and ginger ale.

Place your pork chops into the brine and allow it to soak it for 6-24 hours in the fridge.

Remove your pork chops and discard any leftover brine. Pat your pork chops dry and coat both sides with oil, then season across both sides with pork seasoning. Place your seasoned pork chops on a plate in the refrigerator, uncovered, while you preheat your grill.

2 Grill Prep

Fuel: We recommend Kingsford® Hardwood Pellets

Amount: 1 to 1.5 lb.

Temp: 225°F & 425ºF

3 The Cook

  • Place a temperature probe into the thickest part of your boneless pork chop, making sure to not to touch the bone, and set the pork chop on your pellet grill. 

  • Smoke until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 100°F. This should take about 45 minutes.

  • Increase the heat on your pellet grill to 425°F and once it’s at temp, cook your pork chops until they reach an internal temperature of 145°F. This should only take a few minutes. 

  • Remove your pork chops from the grill and allow them to rest for 10 minutes, then serve.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Chops, Bad Recipe These are wonderful chops, juicy and tender. I added a little bite of heat with the rub (red pepper flakes). But the recipe is confusing as steps 4 & 5 reference a different cut of meat..
