1. For the Pork Chops, mix beer, brown sugar and salt in medium bowl until sugar is dissolved. Place pork in large plastic or glass container. Pour brine over pork. If necessary, place a plate on top of pork chops to keep them submerged. Cover container. Refrigerate 2 to 4 hours.

2. For the Slaw, brush cabbage and bell pepper with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Grill over medium-high heat 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly charred and softened, turning occasionally. Cool slightly. Cut into thin strips. Mix remaining 2 tablespoons oil, vinegar, brown sugar and Seasoning in large bowl until well blended. Add cabbage mixture; toss to coat well. Set aside.

3. Remove pork chops from brine. Discard remaining brine. Rinse pork chops well under cool running water. Pat dry. Brush pork chops lightly with oil. Rub with Seasoning.

4. Grill pork chops over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes per side or until desired doneness. Serve with Cabbage Slaw.
