Brisket Rub

This makes enough rub for 20 or so briskets but don't worry, it stores well.
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1/2 cup chili powder
  • 1/4 cup garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup black pepper
  • 1/4 cup dried thyme (optional)

Combine all ingredients and store in an air tight container. When you're ready to cook, rub about 3 tablespoons into your brisket. I actually liked this one with and without the thyme, but you decide.

  • Yields: about 4 cups of rub
