i'll give that a try, mikey - i really liked the flavor and i think that the combinations are really good - darn near perfect. it really seemd to go well with the beef brisket and i am looking forward to trying it on pork when i run out of my current batch of pork rub.

i didn't have any cinnamon, but will have some for the next attempt.

i'll try a second batch without grinding it and will report on the results!

sorry to take so long, but here's q-view of the finsihed product:

brisket with black-cherry kool-aid added to a slightly-modified version of mikey's rub:



sliced brisket (a bit too thick) -



i think it wuld have tasted much better if i would have sliced it thinner - as it was, it was pretty good!

Next time try injecting your brisket, it will help keep it juicy. Also Try to always get Choice cut brisket it is more tender. Walmart to the best of my knowledge only caries Select cut brisket. If your a member of Sam's Club they carry Choice Cuts. Oh and by the way that looked pretty good to me, nice smoke ring.

dacfan - the next time we go to grreat falls, i'll see about going to sam's and getting a couple choice cuts. this one was pretty darn good and i did better than i thought i would, but not quite tender yet. i'll also try rivet's idea as well and will report on results!

wmarkw - any questions, just ask and i'll try to fill in the blanks!

TW, that brisky looks barkalicious! I hope the no salt no sugar worked out for ya, even tho you had to "tweak" it. "Tweaking" is a good thing as none of this stuff is cast in cement. It's been my experience that the simpler it is, the better it works. Smoke on, bro.

mikey - the flavor was great, but the texture was a little powdery - i'll try not grinding it next time and that should make a big difference!
