We do not use the term noob or n00b etc...now, for a simple pantry brisket rub, you could do something as simple as 2 parts black pepper, 1 part kosher salt, 1/4 part each chile powder, paprika and powdered garlic and have a fine brisket rub. I typically do not use any sugar for a beef rub, just my taste. I really like a simple rub like I outlined.
I'm feeling bearish, and I'm packing a Wusthof Grand Brisket slicer from MABA
