This looks like a really friendly forum so here I am.

I have a Bradley electric smoker for both hot and cold smoking. I have been doing this for around 3 years. Apart from the normal things like pork, fish, sausages etc I smoke our own paprika, salt and garlic.

At present I am about to start the  wet brining of a whole leg of pork. I was very successful last year but seem to have forgotten exactly what I did. All I can remember is that I let it soak for around 3 weeks. Very happy to take any suggestions (polite of course)

Norman Welcome to SMF. Not sure how long to soak that pork. I norm just apply a rub and let it rest over night then smoke until it gets to 165 internal then foil and cook until 205.

Hey Norman, welcome to the SMF! Glad you joined

There's is a wealth of knowledge here, but being that your in the UK and you cure is sometimes different then ours here in the US I'd suggest you check out, http://forum.sausagemaking.org/index.php?sid=2df53cd376b4eacb525d545ef3984f43  for a good UK recipe. A wet brined leg is tough to do with out an injection, but it is doable.

Here's a link from a  sausagemaking.org member Wheels blog on how to do a safe immersion cure. It's very informative and should direct ya in the direction you're look to go.

Good Luck and let us know what ya do....And take a lot of Q-view... (pic's)
