Brined and Grilled Pork Loin

Total time: 60 minutes
     Brining pork adds moisture and flavor, making what can be a somewhat dry cut, tender and succulent.  It's easy to do and there's a lot of leeway on the timing: more than 6 hours but less than 24.  If you don't have a deep enough bowl, try a saucepan or even a food bag that seals well. Use an 'instant read' meat thermometer.

General Technical Details and Disclaimer:

Note:  Nutrition info assumes none of the brine.  I'm sure it must add a bit of salt and possibly some sugar, but I could find no way of determining it.

Measurements are actual measurements used for calculation. If there are no values the nutritional numbers were simply too small.

I try to be accurate, but I do not guarantee it.  I use 'grams' as the unit of weight; with an approximate conversion to ounces.
