Brisket rub

Discussion in 'Beef' started by nickdentist, Oct 30, 2007.

  1. Good morning yall. I am going to smoke a couple of chickens and brisket this weekend. I am going to use my own personal BBQ rub on one of the chickens, and use lemon pepper on the other. Both of them are going to have a beer can in their butt. I do not know what to use for rub on the brisket. Can yall give me some suggestions on what to season the brisket with?

    For brisket I prefer not to use much or any sugar. Here's one that I use a lot:

    Adjust measurements as needed

    2 Tablespoons kosher salt
    2 teaspoons black pepper - course or ground
    2 teaspoons paprika
    1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1 teaspoon granulatated garlic
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

    You can add oregano, rosemary, or other preference as desired to change out the taste a little.

    This is one that I like to use:

    Texas Smoked Brisket Rub
    • 1/4 cup paprika
    • 2 Tbsp chili powder
    • 2 Tbsp kosher salt
    • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
    • 2 Tbsp cumin
    • 1 Tbsp black pepper
    • 1 Tbsp cayenne pepper (optional)
    • 2 Tsp ground coriander
    • 2 Tsp oregano
    Mix the spices, salt and sugar well
    Rub the mixture onto the brisket.
    Plastic wrap it and let it rest in the fridge overnight or at least a couple of hours.
