    The Salmon Candy brine I use is a bag of dark brown sugar, 1 cup non iodized salt, 20 garlic cloves and a small diced walla walla. I air dry for 12-24hrs also. I do start with alder but finish with cherry or apple.

    I've tried your recipe in the past. It's not bad.

    I found out that this brine is actually illegal if you were to use it to smoke your fish and before sale. There is some type of state salinity law that prohibits that recipe from being used for sale. Not enough salt I suppose. No wonder all the stuff at the store tastes like bland salty slop.
