    This works good for me!

    ½ cup Turbinado (raw) sugar
    3 TBsp Kosher salt
    2 TBsp Onion powder
    2 TBsp Garlic powder
    1 ½ TBsp black pepper
    1 Tsp ground Ginger
    1 Tsp ground Thyme
    1 Tsp Red pepper flakes ( double or triple this if you like things spicy)

    Combine ingredients in food processor until well mixed. This makes enough rub for a large brisket, Chuckie, or a couple racks of beef ribs.

    Slather meat with spicy brown mustard. Apply rub and pat into meat. Wrap with plastic wrap and rest in fridge for 12 to 24 hours. Longer the better. Use Apple juice for mop during smoke process. I use a high quality fresh apple juice. The better the juice the better the flavor of the end product. If meat is lean, infuse melted butter into apple juice mop.
