Kosher Salt Help

I live overseas (Budapest) and my supply of kosher salt has run out. The stores that I have been to, from your local CBA to the high end gourmet and specialty, carry a vast array of salt. I've even come across Viking Smoked Salt. But no kosher (kóser in Hungarian) salt.

I've been really looking forward to making the Momofuku recipe for Bo Ssam for some friends and have tracked down all of the ingredients at various Asian markets here but no luck with the salt for the first step of the recipe.

The recipe calls for a dry brine combining 1 cup of kosher salt with 1 cup white sugar.

What other salt could I use? I can get sea salt pretty easily and of course regular table salt. Does anyone have any ideas?
