    And whatever ya choose...DON'T skimp on the rub. Use a mustard slather to help hold more and help "barq' production.

    I mix my own and I am with Rich on the mustard. Oh well, sometimes I use worchestershire. I am mixing up 10 lbs of rub tomorrow, by the way.

    Personally I think brisket says one seasoning. You can add other things but I think there is one that should stand out. This is what I usually do:

    Cracked Black Pepper
    Little bit of onion powder
    Cracked Black Pepper
    Little bit of Garlic Salt
    Cracked Black Pepper
    sometimes I add a little brown sugar and red pepper
    Oh, and....
    Cracked Black Pepper

    I start with a mustard slather and then add the pepper to the top.

    How spicy is the rub? I like it spicy but the wife can not eat it? I am looking for a little kick on my brisket.
