Awsome rub for Pork ribs, but would it work for brisket?

Discussion in 'Sauces, Rubs & Marinades' started by meltyface, Sep 20, 2009.

  1. I used Head Country original seasoning the other day as a dry rub for a few racks of ribs, and I have to say those were the best tasting ribs I've had so far [​IMG]. I have two questions for ya'll however:

    1. Does anyone know if this rub would be good on brisket?
    2. Does anyone know how to make this stuff, so that I can save a few bucks, or something equally as good or better?

    Never Heard of that Brand...[​IMG]
    This is an awsome brand, I use their bbq sauce fairly often, but just recently found the seasoning at the is REALLY good on pork ribs. I'm really tempted to try it on a brisket, but scared at the same time, 'cause I don't want to mess up my meat [​IMG]

    I'm not familiar with the brand, myself.

    I doubt you could really mess up the meat with seasoning, unless it is some radically wild un-tested blend of exotics.

    If you liked it on pork ribs, just give it a shot and see how it goes.

    If you're concerned about the salt content being too high for the beef, just leave a bit of the fat cap on so it doesn't dry out as easily.

    I use extra salt for heavily marbled beef with good success...seems to help breakdown the fat during the smoke, so that end should be fine.

    I don't see why it wouldn't work on a brisket, I would give it a try, ought to be perfectly fine.

    I cann't see any reason why that rub won't work on brisket. After all a rub is a rub. I use my favorite rub on alot of things from ribs, brisket and even fish.
  9. Guess I'll have to give it a try when I cook my next brisket.

    Fourluv..I never thought about using chili powder as an ingredient, that's a good idea.

    That's for all the input.
