Something like 2 parts kosher salt to 1 part course ground black pepper to 1 part granulated garlic? Or cut back on the salt and go 1:1:1?
I'll whip out the kitchen scale and apply the rub lightly, as others have suggested (as opposed to a thick coat like for a butt).
You don't want more salt than pepper. It is possible to over-salt a brisket. It is nearly impossible to accidentally use too much black pepper.
