    Saturday I plan on making a brisket SmokieOkie style. I have never made a brisket so this will be knew to me.

    So far I have very much liked Jeff's rub for pork, but I am wondering if I should try a different rub for beef brisket? Another question I have is with putting rub on a beef brisket is, mustard or not?

    If anyone has any tips or tricks for me, they would be greatly appreciated.

    Mustard, then rub... burn the hell out of it, smoke it, love it.

    Also the consensus seems to be Jeff's rub is OK for brisket.

    I did not try it on brisket yet, sooo... just repeating what I read.

    I use savory, rosemary in a higher amount, coriander and thyme in my beef rub, FYI FWIW

    marty, i just replied to your PM, with a PM. i use jeff's rub on everything i smoke, be it pork or beef. i even put it on my eggs. i usually rub w/ mustard first. have done it a few times w/o mustard. about the same to me; bark is a little different w/o mustard. i prefer w/ mustard though.

    I use Jeff's rub all the time when doing briskets... haven't tried it with mustard yet.

    The searing is a MUST!

    I have used jeff's rub also with great results. I have never done mustard though, just rub it naked. A simple beef rub is a mixture of salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder. That simple and works great.

    I'm doing a packer this weekend also and was looking for rub suggestions. I love Jeff's rub; have used it on spares, baby backs and will be using it on my boston butts this weekend but I want to try something different on this brisket. It will also be my first time with a full packer instead of just the flat.
