Does anyone have a good recipe for a brine to use for smoking and pressure canning smoked trout or kokanee ? I brined some in a soy sauce brown sugar base and smoked and canned it. It turned out good but I would like to improve the flavor. It reminded me of Kippered snacks .

I knew a guy that canned a lot of trout. His ingredients were similar to yours but he added garlic and black pepper. And I'm guessing he would have said " a s#*t ton of garlic". Lol 😂. But that's your call.

Marinate 24 - 36 hrs . smoke for 2 hours then add 1 tablespoon each peanut oil , maple syrup and bourbon to 1 pint jar . Add fish and pressure can . The guy that gave me this recipe swears by it .
