Pork chops don't need long in a Brine may be 30 min
Basic Brine
1/2 gal water
1/4 cup salt
1/4 cup sugar
Never met a cow I didn't like with a little salt and pepper.

I love brined pork chops, especially loin chops. Sometimes I'll use brown sugar, or even honey in the brine.

Somewhere on the label it will say, "may contain (whatever percentage) solution for flavor and tenderness.
(Insert witty signature here)
