    Kosher Salt, coarse ground black pepper. A sprinkle of chili powder. Better yet, just show the chili powder label to the brisket and call it good. Use the right wood and the rub doesn’t matter. I like a mix of White Oak and  mesquite. 
    Michiana, South of the border.

    coarse kosher salt and coarse ground black pepper. Rub in brisket night before then cook around 275 average time is about 12-13 hours when done then wrap in foil then in towels place in ice chest for about 4-6 hours will come out perfect with salt and pepper.
