Ingredients

Brisket
  • 1 whole brisket
  • Al's BBQ Rub
  • 6 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne
  • Chef notes

    Use Al's favorite rub on your next brisket and we guarantee you'll be thrilled with the juicy result.

    Preparation

    1. Mix all rub ingredients together.  
    2. Rub each side of brisket with about ½ cup rub. Do this the night before if time allows.
    3. Prepare the grill or smoker for long-term cooking.  Place brisket fat side up onto grill and close lid. Keep temperature between 275 – 325F, and let brisket cook low and slow, about 8 hours.
