Best Brisket EVER eaten; melts in your mouth, AND in your hand!

Jenn Cook


After DAYS of testing the perfect rub combination I finally found it!! This has been tested and approved by young and older men everywhere, and even the ladies that don't eat a lot of meat. It caters to the savory, moist, melt in your mouth tender taste buds everywhere. A REAL crowd pleaser on any game day!! Do you have a man that is still on the fence with you? Make him this brisket, and you will have him eating out of your hands, literally!! :) I entered this actual brisket into a cook off, and out of 24 briskets, this brisket was the most flavorful, moist and tender one of the bunch.

How to Make Best Brisket EVER eaten; melts in your mouth, AND in your hand!


  1. Prepare your smoker with mesquite chips and oak logs. Mix all the ingredients in a zip lock bag break up any lumps!
    On the fat side, cut slits cross wise in the fat layer, and rub in the seasoning until it is dark and moist. Flip over and continue. Be sure to take your time with the meat, rub in well with your hand until the fat begins to warm up, and break down. Remember to get the top and sides! If you run out, divide the recipe in half and make more. IT is better to have more then less.
  3. Place on your smoker/grill for 6 or more hours. FLIP ONLY ONCE after half way through.
    Let the heat and smoke do the rest!!
  4. **TIP** you can use this rub on steaks and roasts as well!! Enjoy!
