I went to the store and bought what I thought was a beef brisket but when I got home and read the label it said it was a “Pork Spare Rib Cut Brisketâ€. My question is what type of rub should I use (Brisket or Rib) and do I cook it differently than a beef brisket? It weighs 9lbs but I wasnâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]t sure if pork cooked faster than beef. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A what??? theres a strip of meat on the backs of spare ribs called the brisket but it is usually a small strip, cant imagine 9 lbs
someone will have an answer shortly... is there any fat or marbeling on or in it??

Yes, there is marbeling throughout the piece of meat but there is not a thick piece of fat on the bottom.

A 9 lbs spare rib brisket, how big were the ribs!!! I never heard of anything that big. Are you sure it wasn't just the wrong lable on the meat?

It must be mislabeled. A 9# slab of ribs would be huge. I'm pretty sure they are normally about 3.5#'s.

at my local grocery chain, they have what they call a pork brisket, bone in. it looks like a beef brisket, kinda. has no fat cap, but is marbled real good. i haven't tried one, but they are cheap.

It might be a pork brisket b/c on the package it says "Bone Cut Out". I'll try to take a picture of it tonight so everyone can see.

Right you are! There are three slaps of ribs with the bone removed. Well, at least I know what I have and how to smoke it now. Thanks for your help everyone.
