I smoke salmon a lot. The only time it was really too salty was when I only had about half the amount of Kosher salt I needed and substituted in some table salt for the rest. I do know that people have different tastes when it comes to saltiness. We generally prefer a 4:1 ratio of brown sugar:salt, but others use 3:1 or even 2:1. There are no hard and fast rules. Play with it until you get what you like.
