Since there are several products on their site...which one do you recommend for brisket? From what I see...there is the Original, No.2 and Grand Champion.

    The #2 is their "Brisket Rub".  It's a little "spicier" then the Original, which is a bit "sweeter".  The Grand Champion and the Texas Wild are also good.

    Thanks COS, I will be ordering some up later this spring when I decide to give brisket a try and may just order a bit of both the #2 and Grand Champion.

    I have a brisket on the egg right now covered in "Grand Champion". I'll let you guys know how it tastes. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    I use Grand Champion for everything...from briskets to chicken. Excellent on all.

    I guess I have some more rubs to buy (yes I know that phraze has more than one meaning)

    I bought original and grand champion. I've only used the original so far. Once on ribs, once on a pork butt. I love the stuff.

    Hey...I'm open to trying different recipes. (I also read up on the legendary Elder Ward Recipe) I want to try the texasbbq rub and compare to Elder Ward...then might go on from there. I'm actually itching to try a brisket.
