I left them in the brine overnight and they were the best darn chops I have ever had!! I used a Tupperware container instead of a plastic bag but it was awesome, they were so juicy and some wonderful thick pork chops we got at our local farmer's market but these are the recipe we used for the chops we bought and this recipe really did them justice!!

I may have over cooked them slightly (like I always do) and they were still very flavourful! Will definitely use this recipe again over others I’ve tried before
