Pickle Brined Grilled Pork Chops

Pickle Brined Grilled Pork Chops

By Traeger Kitchen

Pickle brine is high in vinegar, which perfectly pickles the pork. Pepper it with black pepper for a shade of spice and let in the aromatic Traeger smoke get to work-- these pork chops are anything but ordinary.
