In my one brine batch, I used 4 quarts of water, 1/2 cup of salt, 1/2 cup brown Sugar.

Guessing I can't soak post smoking?

Does everybody cook a piece b4 smoking?
I dont use anywhere near that much

I have started using Mortons Tender Quick, it contains the proper amount of salt and it real easy to use

1 tbl spoon per pound. then I add some brown sugar, CBP and garlic power or whatever
