The Smoker King's BBQ Brisket Rub Recipe

Recipe by: The Smoker King

This is definitely a very simple brisket rub recipe.  I have placed first or in the top ten at quite a few BBQ competitions using this simple rub recipe.  A lot of people like to use lots of different ingredients when they make brisket rubs, and I like to keep it simple.  Each ingredient below really compliments the natual, beef flavor of the brisket, and I do not believe in overpowering that.  Enjoy!


1/4-Cup Salt
1/4-Cup Garlic Powder
1/4-Cup Black Pepper
1/4-Cup Paprika


I usually mix and store all ingredients in an empty seasoning container.
Tips: This recipe EXCELLENT on brisket. Rub down the brisket with a light coat of mustard first, then apply the rub. For best results, wrap and refrigerate the brisket for at least 12 hours before cooking.
