Giving this a whirl.  Hope it turns out.
5 lbs sturgeon bled and filleted 1/2" to 3/4" thick
14 cups of water
8 oz kosher salt
4 oz tamari
16 oz brown sugar
3 oz chopped garlic
2 tbls pumpkin spice from trader joes.  Cinnamon, clove, lemon peel, cardamon, nutmeg, ginger
1 tbls onion powder
1 tbls peppercorns
4 bay leaves
Heat and chill
Brine in non reactive container, I use large mason jars, up to 12 hours or overnight then smoke to your favored consistency.  Fully cooked moist, fully cooked dry outside moist inside, dry, or jerky.  6 hours gave me about what I wanted with 1 tray of smoke.  I use peach wood and a big chief.  :smt006

Yes, your day is coming!  Working on some different glazes for finishing in the smoker.
