    Finally... We're home. Excellent smoke ring and tender and juicy.
    That looks great...what did your rub consist of?

    Equal parts brown sugar, paprika, salt, pepper, ancho chili powder and half part fresh ground coffee. It was pretty close to Mickey's rub, with a bit more pepper flavor. I really liked it.

    @SaltySam-Great result.  Glad you stayed the course as you definitely hit a home-run.  With that as a base-line the left-overs will be eggcellent!

  • How spicy was the rub? I love the heat but SWMBO dosent...she likes it more sweet so I backed off on some of the chili powder and pepper and replaced it with more brown and some white sugar...but yours looks a lot better then mine did.

    Ancho chili powder doesn't have as much "punch" as regular chili powder. The two are definitely different flavors. I thought it was spicy, but more from the black pepper than anything else.

    The rub I made used 1/3 cup of everything but the coffee, so with six ingredients, it was a bit shy of 2 cups. I applied it pretty liberally, and used probably 1.5 cups to cover the brisket and the burnt ends. I think that's why I had such a nice bark. I might dial back the pepper a bit and go heavier on brown sugar next time.
