Add some sugar or sweet substance to the brine (not a lot, but a little can make a difference). I like brown sugar or molasses for pork, and honey for chicken. Any acid will make the meat tough, so avoid citrus or vinegar if you're going to leave the meat in a brine for a long time.

I'll take IQF chicken wings, and brine them overnight in the refrigerator in a salt-honey solution that's salty like seawater and just barely sweet. By the time you get to them the next day, they're thawed and ready to go. The sugar will help them brown up deeply and evenly. Oh, and use Alton Brown's wing method -- hasn't steered me wrong once.
