    This is the one I use a lot, I pretty much alternate between this and Jeff's rub

    ½ cup Paprika
    1/4 cup Kosher Salt, fine ground

    1/4 cup Sugar

    2 tablespoons Mustard Powder

    1/4 cup Chili Powder

    1/4 cup Ground Cumin

    2 tablespoons ground Black Pepper

    1/4 cup granulated garlic

    2 tbs Cayenne

    For more hot & spicy increase Mustard powder and Black Pepper to 1/4 cup each

    Good Luck

    Sounds good. I like the a bit more bite in my brisket, so I may do that.

    I did one using just rosemary/garlic seasoning. Turned out great but no heat.

    I've used this rub for a couple years on brisket, it's really good.

    1/2 cup chili powder
    1/2 cup kosher salt
    1/4 cup garlic powder
    1/4 cup onion powder
    1/4 cup black pepper
    1/4 cup sugar
    2 tblsp dry mustard
    2 ground bay leaves

    This will do several briskets

    I did 2 12 lb packers using this recipe and spritzing with cherry juice, along with 3 pork shoulders and 8 racks of baby backs. My wife said that they were the best brisket she'd ever had. I've had several e-mails, facebook comments and phone calls from family members letting me know how good my BBQ was. Unfortunately, my mother-in-law had taken the camera, so no q-view.
