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?
