Created by Jenn's Food Journey

3 cups water
2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 teaspoons sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 boneless pork loin chops
2 Tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons Tabasco
2 garlic cloves, finely minced

In a large measuring cup, add the water, salt, sugar, garlic and red pepper flakes. Stir until salt and sugar and dissolved. Place the pork in a resealable bag in a bowl or shallow dish and pour brine mixture over them. Seal bag and place in fridge for 2 hours. Remove pork from brine and rinse thoroughly with cool water. Pat dry and set aside.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F. Clean and oil grill grates. In a small bowl, mix together the honey, Tabasco and garlic. Brush both sides of the pork with mixture and place directly over the fire. Grill 4 minutes, brush and flip pork. Brush the grilled side with mixture and grill another 4 minutes or until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 140-145 degrees F. Brush with remaining mixture and remove from grill. Allow to cook for 4 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
