2. Remove the chops from the brine and pat dry with paper towel and season with your favorite optional dry rub. Allow the chops to sit at room temperature 1 hour before grilling.
3. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat about 4-5 minutes. Put the chops in the skillet about 1/4 inch apart and sear 2 minutes on each side until well browned. If using bone in chops place the bones inwards to center of skillet.
4. Reduce heat to med-low and cover with a lid. Do not move the chops and only flip each chop over once until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the chop from the side reads 135-140 degrees Fahrenheit(57-60 Celsius).
5. Remove chops from skillet, tent loosely with foil and let rest for 5-10 minutes. Internal temperatures should rise and register 145-150 degrees Fahrenheit(63-66 Celsius) for medium doneness, anything more will begin to dry out and toughen the chops.
