I agree, apart from the salt and sugar, (or in Bludog's case honey) I only use onion, garlic and coarse pepper in my brine because they seem to lend a little more flavor whereas other herbs and spices are pretty much wasted on a brine. One thing to consider though is that if you are sensitive to salt you may want to back off on the salt in your rub a little bit. You might get a sodium overload!
