Homemade Brisket Rub?

Recommended Posts

Anyone have a good brisket rub they like to default to?  I used to use one I received from another smoking forum that contained:

brown sugar

dry mustard

onion and garlic powder

sea salt & pepper

ground coriander seed

ground bay leaf

white pepper



beef granules

dry basil leaves


All of the above in small amounts.  Been using this for the last 20something briskets over years now and looking at what others default to in their smokers for a little variety.  I use a spritz of apple juice, apple cider vinegar, and worster sauce during the smoke.

Will take note of your recipes. I bought a new hitch from 4WheelOnline and my brother will bring his hitch grill. I'll send this to him so we can try it on the weekend. It's my wife's birthday in a few days and this might be a perfect rub for the brisket.

My go to is equal parts Kosher salt and coarse ground black pepper, half amounts of onion and garlic powder and quarter dry mustard. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Been doing it the same way for over 20 years. Everyone seems to like it, I never have any to throw away!
