Ingredients for Basic Brine Recipe

1/2 c Non-iodized salt
1/2 c White sugar
1 qt Water

Basic Brine Preparation

Fill a large container with 1/2 quart of warm water. Add salt and sugar. Mix thoroughly until well dissolved. Add the remaining 1/2 quart of water. Immerse prepared fish chunks, filets or small whole fish completely in brine solution. Refrigerate fish in brine solution. Brine chunks of fish of fish 1 thick for about 5 up to 8 hours, 1/2 thick for about 4 hours, and for thinner filets or pieces 2-3 hours. After brining, always rinse your fish with plenty of fresh water. Pat the fish dry, and allow them to air dry for about 1 hour. This will cause a pellicle (a tacky glaze on the fish) to form indicating that it is ready for the drying and smoking process. courtesy of: Posted to bbq-digest by Jeff Lipsitt Cable on Apr 23, 1998
