I'll be curious to know how you thought they turned out!
I have to agree, especially since they are the thin ones.
Brining is really not meant for anything that is going to be braised, anyway. It's a technique better suited to dry heat cooking.
I'd brine those thin chops for an hour or two and grill them.
Oh and have I asked you where in Iowa you are? I grew up in CR.
