    Welcome to the SMF John. Great folks here so jump right in and post often.

    Here is the recipe I like to brine my Turkey with. Not sure I would use it for Ham (never tried it)

    2/3 cup kosher salt
    2/3 cup sugar(I like to use brown sugar)
    6 quarter-size slices fresh ginger
    2 bayleaves
    6 whole cloves
    1 teaspoon black peppercorns, crushed (see Cook's Note)
    2 teaspoons whole allspice berries, crushed (see Cook's Note)
    8 cups unsweetened apple cider or juice

    In a 3-to-4 quart saucepan, put the salt, sugar, ginger, bay leaves, cloves, peppercorns, and allspice. Add 8 cups of apple cider or juice and stir to combine. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring until the salt and sugar have dissolved. Boil for 3 minutes,then remove from the heat. Add 4 cups of ice-cold water, stir, and set aside(in fridge) to cool.
