Dry Rubs for Beef

Dry rub for beef brisket:

This is the basic dry rub I use to coat beef brisket before smoking:

  • 3 parts brown sugar
  • slightly less than 1 part kosher salt
  • 1 part chili powder
  • 1 part pepper
  • 1/3 part garlic powder

I use 1/2 cup as 1 part, so this mixture makes a little more than 3 cups of dry rub.  It should be enough for about three beef briskets.  I recommend storing it in a sealed container in the freezer.


I’ll be adding other beef rub recipes here as I experiment.  Check back later!
