Ingredients

Serves 1 Brisket
Rub
8
tablespoons of butter
1
tablespoon of chili powder
3
tablespoons of salt
1/2
teaspoon of smoked paprika
1/2
teaspoon black pepper
1/2
teaspoon of garlic powder
1/2
teaspoon of cayenne
1/2
teaspoon of cumin
1/2
teaspoon dried parsley

Directions

1

Mix all ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl.

2

Use paper towels to dry the brisket. This will prevent the rub from clumping together in wetter areas.

3

Spread the rub generously over the brisket before smoking. Be sure to coat all sides.

Hot Tip: Gently press the rub into the surface of the brisket to help the spices stick throughout a long cook time.

    Did my first brisket ever. Into the smoker at 5 am. originally and 11 lb. but trimmed more like 8.5. Smoked at 225 , the stall was at least 6 hrs, maybe longer.Planned for dinner at about 6. Finally took it out at 190 , only let it rest 20 minutes but was like butter to slice. Everyone raved best they had ever had. Worth the wait. Smoked on a Masterbuilt electric smoker.
