Brined Rosemary Pork Chops

This is a recipe I copied from a Weber Real Grilling Cookbook, the chops turn out so tender and juicy and full of flavour.  The marinated chops can also be pan fried.

3 tablespoons kosher salt
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
3 whole branches fresh rosemary
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 bone-in pork rib chops, each about 1 inch thick

In a medium bowl, combine the salt and sugar.
Pour 1 cup hot water into the bowl and whisk to dissolve the salt and sugar.
Add 2 cups of cold water along with the remaining brine ingredients.
Place the chops in a large, re-sealable plastic bag and pour in the brine. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly.
Turn the bag to distribute the brine, place the bag in a bowl and refrigerate for 4 hours.
Remove the pork chops from the bag and pat dry; discard brine.
Allow to stand at room temperature for 20 minutes before grilling.
