Let's Make It
Bring apple juice, vinegar, crushed pepper, salt, 1 cup water and 1/4 cup sugar to boil in saucepan, stirring frequently; simmer on medium-low heat 5 min. or until sugar is completely dissolved, stirring occasionally. Pour into large bowl. Add enough ice to remaining water to measure 1 qt. (4 cups); stir into apple juice brine. Cool.
Add chops to brine. Refrigerate 4 hours. Meanwhile, mix remaining ingredients with remaining sugar until blended.
Heat greased grill on medium heat. Remove chops from brine; discard brine. Pat chops dry with paper towels. Press seasoning mixture into both sides of chops.
Grill 10 min. on each side or until done (145ºF). Remove from heat. Let stand 3 min. before serving.
Prepare using boneless pork chops, decreasing the grilling time if necessary.
