    Everyone says not to use a rub with sugar for smoking brisket , my rub has brown sugar in it. Do I need to find a new rub?

    Drice5, welcome to SMF!  Glad you are here and asking questions.

    You can use a rub with sugar on a brisket with absolutely no problems.  The real issue is whether sugar and beef go together.  Personally, especially with brisket, I'm a SPOG guy (Salt, Pepper, Onion Power, Garlic Powder).  I save the sugar rubs for pork and sometimes chicken. 

    If you like the taste of the rub with sugar I'm sure you love the brisket.  Smoke away!

    Sugar, no sugar, foil no foil... Go with what you like. I have a rub I use that has brown sugar in it and my wife loves the bark it makes.
