I've never actually measured the amounts. (although recently, I've been getting some pointers as to the ratio from a guy in the know ) As a minimum seasoning I use fine grind canning or sea salt, coarse black pepper, and cayenne. (if this is mixed ahead of time and stored in a Mason jar something special happens, it's better than just sprinkling on the ingredients separately). Adding granulated garlic and sometimes granulated onion (my favorite being the toasted granulated onion from Penzey's) is the next option.

My next choice for seasoning is a Smokey Hale mixture of

1 cup coarse sea or kosher salt
cup granulated garlic
cup granulated onion
1/8 cup ground thyme
1/8 cup ground bay
1/8 cup black pepper
1/8 cup celery seed
1/8 cup Hungarian paprika
Thanks Wayne...what pit do you use and what temps do you smoke your briskets...if I may ask? I'm very interested in trying your above mentioned rub. I'm not a big fan of sweet when it comes to beef and your rub sounds right up my alley.
