You will find when you reduce the sugar it will become more salty so reduce the salt as well.

The reverse also works so if you add some salt the sweetness will diminish.

Well, after having it for dinner I was told "this is delicious!" So I will not be changing the brine and I will never buy another store CB again!

Maybe the math experts will weigh in?

You need a level of salt and cure?

Salt is needed to promote the osmosis.

Cure is needed to make the meat safe.

Sugar has a little curing element, but not much as compared to the salt and cure.

If you think your meat was too sweet?  I would reduce the sugar.

Having said that?  A balance between salt and sugar is what many folks look for.

Good luck and good smoking.
