First Brisket smoke.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

This was my first brisket that I did yesterday.  It turned out pretty well, but I used a store bought rub and it turned out to be really salty.  I believe I will make my own rub next time. I smoked it on my Brinkmann charcoal grill with hickory and oak.  It was smoked for about 6 hours at 225 degrees.  I was very happy with how juicy and tender it  was.

It looks great.


You can also use less of the rub next time. Or just modify the rub to bring down the sodium content.

Yea some of those premixed rubs can be on the salty side. Especially some of the McCormick ones. The brisket lookes great though.

That looks AWESOME !


Salty??---A couple beers usually helps.


I agree with RB. The only batch of Bacon I ever made that I had to soak & soak & soak after curing was with the "HI MT BBB" cure. When you use a "pre-mixed" rub, you don't know how much or what is in it. When you mix your own, you can make adjustments in future smokes.

Thanks, for the comments everyone.  I usually like to do my own rubs but I thought I would give this one a try, it was Weber Chicago Steak seasoning.  It had great flavor, it just needed to cut about 2/3 of the salt out of it.  I will use it again, just a little less of it.


It was 2 pounds.

Now your brisket looks fabulous and I know it tasted awesome too. Now for your 6 hour smoke. Did you smoke it by time or temp?? We like to smoke by temp not time here.

I went by temp.  I took it to around 160.
