Salmon Sweet Pickle Brine (P, TNT)
Source: Self
Yield: Enough for 6 sides of salmon

1-1/2 gallons water
1/2 cup kosher salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 tbsp. pickling spice mix
2 tsp. coarse ground black pepper
4 to 6 crushed bay leaves
1 onion cut into quarters
6 to 8 cloves of garlic

Mix everything together.

Poster's Notes:
In my experience it pays to experiment. I smoked up 6 sides of salmon using this marinade for my daughter's bat mitzvah last spring. Though there was plenty of other good food on hand, the crowd zeroed in on these suckers. Hardly any leftovers at all!
