These mustard glazed grilled pork chops are impossibly juicy, incredibly flavorful, and so easy make! The perfect summertime backyard meal!
Combine the water, mustard, salt, brown sugar, garlic, and thyme in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat just until the sugar and salt are dissolved, stirring frequently.
Remove from the heat and immediately stir in the ice. Allow the ice to melt and be sure the brine is fully cooled before pouring it over the chops.
Place the chops in a baking dish. Pour the cooled brine over the chops, being sure they are fully submerged. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least four hours (or up to 24 hours).
Remove the chops from the brine and pat dry. Brush both sides of the chops with olive oil and let stand at room temperature while you preheat the grill and make the glaze.
Heat the grill to med/high heat and whisk together the mustard, brown sugar, white wine vinegar, salt, and pepper in a small bowl for the glaze.
Place the chops on the grill and brush the tops with some of the glaze. Close the grill and cook for 3-4 mins.
Flip the chops with tongs, and brush again with glaze. Close the lid and cook for about 2-3 mins. Turn once more, brush with remaining glaze, close the lid, and cook 1-2 mins. (Lower the flame if the chops begin to burn.)
Remove the chops to a plate and cover with foil. Let them rest for about 5 mins before serving.
