        Culinary Steps:

        Make the pork chop brine by dissolving the dark brown sugar into the hot water. Then add the bay leaf, black peppercorns, thyme, whole grain mustard, garlic, onion, and Coconut Secret Sauce. Let cool to room temperature.
        Brine the pork chops by submerging the meat in the brine. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours, up to
        24 hours.
        Make the herbed goat cheese by folding the goat cheese with sage, thyme leaves, kosher salt, and black pepper. Hold chilled until service.
        Grill the brined pork chops and peach halves until pork chops reach an internal temperature of 150°F and peaches are slightly softened and charred. After removing pork chops from the grill, let them rest for ~5 minutes.
        Serve the grilled pork chops and peaches with grits, herb goat cheese, and chopped parsley.

        The Coconut Aminos did an excellent job creating salinity in the brine while also adding a dynamic flavor and nice brown color to the pork chops. I think this would work well in chicken as well!
