Here's the one I use for poultry. Scale to whatever amount you need for the size of bird you're cooking.

2 Quarts water
1 C chopped sweet onion
4-6 garlic cloves chopped
1/2 C kosher salt
1/2 C packed dark brown sugar
1 TBSP fresh thyme
1 TBSP fresh rosemary finely chopped
1/4 C coarsely ground black pepper
1 TSP hot paprika
1 TSP cumin seeds
3-4 bay leaves

Throw the onion and garlic with one cup of water in the food processor and blend to a coarse texture. Throw it and everything else in a non-reactive pan. Boil for 10 minutes decrease heat and simmer for 30. Let cool and refrigerate before use.
