A Great BBQ Brisket Dry Rub
So much of what goes into a great tasting brisket can be summarized in two parts: the smoking process and the dry rub. It takes a proper cooking method and the perfect Bbq Brisket Dry Rub to have brisket done right with great flavor from both the meat and the rub itself.
Brisket is a Texas delicacy. There is a method to getting that perfect Texas-style brisket. Today, we will look at the process for making a perfect brisket and what should go into the dry rub you use.
Cooking a Brisket
Picking the proper brisket is important to the cooking process. A whole packer brisket is typically best because it includes both the point and flat muscle. Getting prime beef is also important for quality. You will have more fat marbling in prime beef, which will give you much more flavor and juiciness.
After you get the right brisket, you need to trim it before you can start with other preparation steps. Once trimmed, you can season the brisket with a BBQ brisket dry rub. We’ll review some specifics of the dry rub in a moment.
The steps for smoking the brisket are left to your discretion. A recommended time frame for an initial smoke is eight hours at 165 degrees. Once the initial smoke is complete, you want to wrap your brisket and smoke at 225 degrees for up to eight more hours, though it normally takes less. By wrapping the brisket, it locks in the juices and flavors and creates a smokier bark covering the meat.
