Mix water, 2 Tbsp. sugar and salt until sugar and salt are dissolved. Pour over chops in resealable plastic bag. Seal bag; turn to evenly coat chops with brine. Refrigerate 1 hour. Meanwhile, mix remaining sugar and seasonings.
Heat grill to medium-high heat. Remove chops from brine; discard bag and brine. Coat chops evenly with seasoning mixture.
