Beef Brisket Dry Rub

Condiments, Dressings, Sauces

  • Coats 7-to-8-lb. brisket


  • 2 Tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup paprika
  • 3 Tablespoons coarse salt (I use sea salt)
  • 2-1/2 Tablespoons black pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon chili powder


Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. This will coat a 7- to 8-pound beef brisket (do not use a corned beef brisket). Coat entire brisket with dry rub mix and cover with plastic. Chill at least eight hours, preferably overnight. Use your favorite barbecue sauce as a mop sauce to baste with while cooking. Cook brisket as desired, over coals or in your oven, referring to a cookbook for meat cooking directions.
