The brine...

1 gal. water
3/4 C. kosher salt
1/2 C. sugar
2 tsp. pink salt (nitrite)
5 cloves garlic
4 Tbl. pickling spice
I get mine at Williams Sonoma. Prague Powder #1 and Instacure #1 are popular as well. Many good butcher shops and cooking/kitchen store will carry curing salt. Widely available online as well.
