Hello lonnie t

No you don't.  I have have tried brines and not cared much for them. Before I smoke salmon I put them in a zip lock bag with "Italian dressing" squeeze the air out and zip it. A few hours or overnight in the fridge works good.  The oil in the dressing keeps the meat from drying out ( i don't use a water pan ) and the spices add to the flavor.   Happy smokin
