1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup dark brown sugar (packed)
1 tablespoon garlic salt
1 tablespoon coarse black pepper
1 tablespoon sweet Hungarian paprika
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon celery salt
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground thyme
This is enough rub for a 7-12 lb brisket. It is smoked @ 230-250 degrees indirect for 45-60 minutes per lb.
Funk...if I'm following your drift...you recommend more salt (as a flavor carrier) than anything else. If that is the case how can we achieve the awesome bark shown in Wayne's brisket pic (not knowing his ingredients) without a sugar based rub or mop?
This is the Kirk I remembered,,, Note the Salt Content. If you used Salt and powders you get the same thing if you let it sit. I don't agree with the sugar and as far as rubs I have no problem rubbing (I know why you're not supposed too) when I rub in a coarse blend.
MAKES 3 CUPS
Kansas City chef and "Baron of Barbecue" Paul Kirk, who gave us this recipe, told us that the anatomy of the dry rub consists of a balance of sugar and salt, with paprika added for color, chili powder for flavor, and a touch of mustard "just because." From there, it's up to you.
1 cup sugar
1⁄4 cup seasoned salt, such as Lawry's
1⁄4 cup garlic salt
1⁄4 cup celery salt
1⁄4 cup onion salt
1⁄2 cup paprika
3 tbsp. chili powder
2 tbsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp. lemon pepper
2 tsp. ground sage
1 tsp. dry mustard
1⁄2 tsp. ground thyme
1⁄2 tsp. cayenne
1. Sift together sugar, seasoned salt, garlic salt, celery salt, onion salt, paprika, chili powder, black pepper, lemon pepper, sage, mustard, thyme, and cayenne into a bowl. Store in a jar. (When using, sprinkle onto, don't rub into, meat.)
