As I'm fairly new to the brisket cooking side of bbq, I'm just wondering what everyone is using for injection/rub. I know bovine bold is pretty popular, what else is out there?

We're kinda partial to Smoking Guns Hot outside and Butchers inside.

I use Dizzypig's Cowlick rub. Its a nice, peppery rub, does very well in competition. I do not inject, so the rub is particularly important in setting the flavor profile. Highly recommended.

I use Dixie Meat Rub. A little company but an awesome beef/brisket rub. Took a few 1st places, 2nd and 3rd places last year using it. The thing I really love about it is that it has very little salt. www.thebestmeatrub.com (http://www.thebestmeatrub.com/)

I've heard nothing but good things about bub-ba-q's brisket and every comp I've seen him at he does great in that category. I tried to order some of it from his site, but it's not working right now. Thanks for the info though, hope to get some soon.

You can't go wrong with any of the Brethren rubs...Kosmo's, Plowboy's, Simply Marvelous,...they are all winners!
There are more...but those are off the top of my head.

I use either Plowboys Bovine Bold or a recipe I got from one of the teams that won the American Royal a long time ago. It's not sold, one you have to make up yourself. But it's good.

Mind if I ask why? I'm nervous to put anything on meat I plan to turn into judges that says "hot" or any variation of the word. Several notes in my results packets last year lead me to believe that judges do NOT like heat....of any kind.

Smokin Guns hot is a pretty darn good rub. I use it on everything else.

As far as judges not liking heat, I would say it depends on how HOT you make it. I judge a lot and have had some so hot it was just BAD:mad2:. But I like some heat as I think most judges do but don't kill them with it.

Smokin' Guns Hot is not hot...trust me...and it is a very good rub!

I use a good rub that's been around a good long time. The hot rub is not that hot.

We keep it simple. We use the Kosmo's Beef Injection and his Cow Cover rub and we usually have solid results in brisket.

I'll second the Slabs brisket rub. Good flavor profile and not too hot.

Start with salt and pepper and go from there.

If you are one that helps create shigging. You never forget anything!!!! ;) then I have to remember if we were drinking whiskey or not...

Just got a bunch of this stuff and love the final product. nice and spicey and really sets a nice bark on that brisket.

As for the injection, Im not gonna give the whole recipe away but lets just say that a little cola goes a long way!

My rub is an old family secret. But I'll share it with a few of you here: :wink:

2 C. brown sugar
1/4 C. paprika
2 t. chili powder
1/2 t. cayenne pepper
1/2 C. salt
2 t. black pepper
1 t. garlic

I usually cheat and go a little extra on the brown sugar.

I think the rub must match your cookin style. Hot, low and slow, do you wrap?
I use my own.

1st level rub - Dixie Dust. 2nd level rub - Plowboys Bovine Bold or Simply Marvelous Sweet and Spicy rub. I'm planning to try SM's Cherry rub on a flat this weekend to see how it turns out....
