Default Turkey Brine

This is my first post.
I am smoking a Turkey for a Hanukah Party this Saturday. I am going to brine the Turkey. I got a Brine Recipe that I want to use. I also plan on adding Bourbon. I want to know if there is an ingredient that might not belong or might be too much.

Thank you.


Turkey Brine

4 quarts water
2 cups dark brown sugar
1 cup soy sauce
1 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup sea salt
8-10 whole cloves garlic, peeled
6-8 whole bay leaves
3 large sprigs of thyme
2 teaspoons whole peppercorns

Place 2 quarts of water and other ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil, dissolving sugar and maple syrup. Remove from heat, add remaining 2 quarts and allow brine to cool completely before using.
