I can't Sleep So instead of waking up the house doing something at this time of the night so I'll keep looking and posting what I find.

French’s Un-Briny Brine

1 cup water
1 cup white cooking wine
1 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 cup lemon juice
2 cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes

Mix until sugar dissolves. Makes enough to brine 5 pounds of filets. If desired, substitute kosher salt or pickling salt for half the sugar. Do NOT use iodized salt.

So far, I’ve used this brine on Spanish mackerel, halibut,

Is that recipe out of the Bradley recipe book? If so I don't have that one. Can anyone get me a copy of the recipe?
Thanks;  Pat

this may seem obvious but have you tried the "Alder Smoked Halibut" recipe off of the main Bradley site.  I used that recipe on some tuna and it turned out great. made a fantastic smoked tuna salad that worked well on sandwiches, salads, dips you name it.
