Made this tonight and the family loved it! As for the brine, the salt and sugar will dissolve in room temperature water if you simply stir it for a bit before adding the pork. I used coarse salt and sugar in the raw (also large granules), and had no problems at all after stirring it. I found no need to add any salt to the chops before grilling--brining is sufficient after 1 hour. I'm sure dried rosemary would work in a pinch, but fresh rosemary is really added so much flavor. I tried to keep the onions in a wedge, but they fell apart as they browned. I didn't see this as a problem though. Only alteration I made was to use peaches instead of pears--yummy!!! Cut into large wedges so they wouldn't fall apart or get mushy. We loved it, and it will be in our rotation.
