    When I ordered my RecTec Stampede I added a package the had these Grillgrates and they are awesome. Last week I went to their website and found this recipe and thought wow this would be easy.
    Last night I made up the brine and had it chilling in the fridge. This morning I added the four chops before going to work. They brined for 12 hours. I cranked up the RecTec to 400 degrees and let the Grillgrates get nice and hot.
    After the first 5 minuets I turned them for the beautiful grate marks. I went approximately 15-20 minuets each side. This recipe had amazing flavors and like the author said the beer and molasses will produce unique flavors. I’m just passing on a great recipe to try.
    The Mrs always says I grill the chop to long but I like them crispy. This cook I toned it down a bit as to not dry them out......see loved them:cool:

    I will definitely make these again!

    Well I heartily approve as I see New Glarus *waves WI Flag!* I might have to try this; I always use cider to brine pork. Apples, about 6% ABV...though never considered molasses

    They look excellent & very moist!
    I'm planning on smoking some chops tomorrow & may just try that brine out tonight. Sounds like you were happy with it?
