Default Turkey Brine

Does smoking turkey require a less saline brine solution.

I made my usual brine - 2 gals liquid (including about 25& ice), 1 cup kosher salt and 1/2 cup sugar one day in advance.

I rubbed the bird under the skin with Plowboys Yardbird.

The brine is what I use to roast my turkeys using an herb butter rub.

I cooked with royal oak and cherry 275- 300 for four hours.

It was a little too salty for my taste.

Does the lower longer cook concentrate the brine?
