Well had so much fun doing a variety last weekend, I decided to do a brisket tomorrow. Getting up at 4:30 again to start the smoke. I'll have to take pics in the morning of the brisket all rubbed down. I mixed up a rub that is similar to what I use on my prime rib. Always get lots of compliments on the prime rib so figured it should work good on the brisket. Here is the recipe for my Rib Roast Rub. 1 TBS Course Kosher Salt 1 TBS Chili Powder 1 TSP Thyme, sometimes more depending on how it tastes to me. 1/2 TSP Cayenne Powder 1 TSP Onion Powder 1 TSP Granulated Garlic 1 TSP Cumin 1/2 TSP Mustard Powder 1 TBS Course ground Black Pepper My plan for a sauce is the same as with my Prime Rib. Skim and reduce pan drippings by half, add some Kitchen Boutique (browning sauce) and a touch of worchestire sauce. S&P to taste. I will add beef broth if necessary, but prefer not too. Looking forward to it.
