We use the same simple brine for chicken and fish only. Lately, we've been smoking a crap-load of marlin and this brine works great.

1 Gallon Water (offset with some ice)
1 bottle Apple Juice (64oz)
2/3 C Kosher Salt
2/3 C Brown Sugar
1 Lemon - halved and squeezed (add the squeezed juice AND the lemon rinds to the brine)
4 Bay Leaves
1 T Peppercorns
4-8 cloves of garlic (each quartered)

You will need to adjust the brine amount based on how much meat you are planning on smoking.

Fish strips (about the size of a middle finger) brine for 1.5 hours.
Bone-in, skinless chicken thighs brine for about 4 hours. We never brine the skin.

Make sure to rinse each piece off with cold fresh water.

It works for us.
