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.

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.

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.
