Marinating with a marinade is adding flavor. Go for it if your dish requires it!
Brining uses salt to achieve osmosis. This can suck flavors and liquid into your meat. If that is what you are after? Go for it!
Brining with cure is different. If you are brining to cure meat, there are a lot of safety guidelines to follow.
Post up your goal, and there will be experienced people here who will be glad to help you.
Good luck and good smoking.
