Great beef brisket is built on layers of flavor and those layers start with the barbecue rub. Brisket rubs can be simple or complex and a great rub creates a crunchy, flavorful, rich crust which is known as the bark.
So how much rub should you apply to your brisket? We like to recommend about a tablespoon per lb (but we never really measure when seasoning). Lightly oil your brisket with olive oil. Many of the spices in this rub are oil soluble and the oil helps the spices penetrate the meat. Liberally sprinkle the rub on your beef brisket, heavier amounts on the thicker cuts and less on the thinner.
Ingredients: Black pepper, salt, sugar, onion, garlic, ancho, mustard, and chipotle
