Do you season pork chops after brining?

This is my first time brining pork chops - they are about to go on the grill. Do they still need to be seasoned as regular?

    Be careful with salting them after brining--they could be too salty. If you are going to marinate them--do that before the brine.

      "Do they still need to be seasoned as regular?"

      This depends a bit on your brine. If it's a simple brine you may still want to season your chops. I often do. However if you used some thing like mulling spice or cider in your brine you may not want to.

        These were the best pork chops I have ever made - seasoned with garlic, thyme and some others after brining - I will never cook them without brining again!

          I normally season brined pork for the grill with one of three different "house" blends.

            salt them after they cook if you want to play it safe. adding salt before cooking isn't going to make a whole lot of difference.
