Brining enhanced chops?
My wife bought some pork chops at the store the other day and I plan on cooking them tomorrow evening on the CG.

I was looking at the package and noticed they are the "tenderness and moisture enhanced with up to 12% solution".

Should I still brine these or just season and go with it?

I'm not real familar with brining, but did brine the chicken last time I did some and it turned out really good.

DO NOT BRINE, just season. 12% solution is just salt water.

Agreed, I wouldn't brine.

I would experiment with a brine on a couple. Maybe cut the salt down but other herbs could make a nice flavour...

I wouldn't, did in the past... way too salty.

I do brine (salt + sugar + spices) butts overnight prior to going on the UDS, enhances the flavor, keeps the meat moister.
