Brisket Marinate Suggestions needed

I will be cooking my first brisket tomorrow and need suggestions for marinates. I am not sure if I should use a dry rub or go with a liquid marinate. I have used JJ's rub on all my boston butt cooks and have been very pleased. [p]I have considered the recipe posted from eggfest 2000 brisket but I haven't seen any results from this method.[p]Any suggestions would be appreciated.[p]JM[p]Any

    Dang. Just got to this message and was suprised to see no responses! I posted a marinade recipe that is excellent (provided to me by Spice Cooks ). But whatever you do will be good. From salt/pepper, or JJ's rub, to a fancy marinade....or even as Qgan has done marinating in root beer. The taste of the beef is what really shines in a brisket. No matter what I have done, they always come out great. Hope it is not too late.[p]A mustard slather helps with crusting and maybe a tad in tenderizing.
    Hope that helps.
