  • 4 pork chops, each 1 to 1-1/4 inches thick
  • About 3 cups dill pickle brine, or the brine from 2 jars of dill pickles
  • Coarse black pepper

Preperation Steps
  • Put the pork chops and pickle brine in a resealable plastic bag. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Drain well and pat dry with paper towels. Season generously with black pepper.
  • When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 300 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Put the chops directly on the grill grate and grill, turning once, for about 1 hour, or until the internal temperature of the chop is at least 145 degrees F. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
