I like Pop's brine like this:

1 Gallon Water

3/4 Cup  of Kosher or 1/2 Cup of Sea salt

1 Cup White Granulated Sugar

3/4 Cup of Brown Sugar

1 TBS of Cure #1

The sugar and salt are a balancing act. If you cut the salt only it becomes sweeter and if you cut the sugar only it becomes salty.

Here is a thread for smoking with heat. You can also cold smoke it.
