Looking for a new brisky rub...

Discussion in 'Beef' started by scvinegarpepper, Aug 1, 2013.

  1. I've done very few briskets. The last one I did came out great, but I want a different rub. I used an injection with beef broth, a little worc. sauce, and garlic. Loved the injection. For the rub I used montreal steak seasoning. I like it, but I want to switch it up this time. I plan on doing a flat this weekend just because I don't have anything else going on and feel like smoking! As y'all know, the Montreal is a little on the salty/peppery side. I want to do more of a "traditional" BBQ rub, i.e., something with some sweet heat to it, some chili powder, etc. My only concern is how it will mesh with the beef broth based injection. I don't want to do a sweet heat rub and have it ruined by a saltier, savory injection. You know what I mean? I'm open to any and all suggestions. Thanks in advance for any advice, ladies and gents.

    I found a steak/burger rub that was just pepper, garlic & ground mustard, I believe it is called Prairie Dust.  I have used it on several things on the grill, but nothing smoked yet.  I quite like it, the beef flavor still rings plenty.  If you add some salt to that so it "works" overnight it may be an option for you.

    I'm a great believer in letting the meat flavor shine on its own....especially brisket. A little SPOG has become my favorite.

    You want to mix your own, or a store bought?  If store bought, try some Pappy's.  Pat the brisket dry with paper towels, then rub with some  Olive or vegetable oil and  put the Pappy's on sparingly

    Here is one of my favorite brisket rubs.  Adjust the peppers to suit your heat tolerance

    3 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
    2 tablespoons table salt
    1 tablespoon granulated white sugar
    1 tablespoon onion powder
    2 teaspoons mustard powder
    2 teaspoons garlic powder
    2 teaspoons chili or ancho powder
    1 teaspoon chipotle or cayenne powder

    If you are looking for new and different store bought rub, ya might try some Tatonka Dust, sold by Owens BBQ, you'll have to google it.
  6. I might give this one a shot since I don't really have time to order one if I wanna use it this weekend. Thanks for the recipe!
