Aaron Franklin is running a restaurant and is cooking probably 70 or 80 briskets a day! I will almost guarantee you that his rub doesn't get too much more intricate than salt and pepper! He may throw more stuff on at home or for small batch cooks but I doubt that he does when cooking for the masses.

My first time at Franklin, I went up to chat w Stacy (Aaron's wife) when the line died off. Aaron had just gone home unfort... I bluntly asked about the s$p rub and she smirked and said of course that's all. Her face was riddled w sarcasm. I prodded more about what they do and got the same smirking response. This was when the first opened the brick and mortar store.

Essentially, he's doing more than just lightly placing s&p on a brisket. I understand the site admin saw him do a simple rub at a festival, as I'm sure he would in the public. I've done salt and pep a ton with great success. you'll never ruin a brisket w just salt and pepper.

I just don't buy his mantra of salt n pepper.

40% - kosher salt
40% - black pepper
10% - garlic powder
10% - onion powder
a splash of paprika for color

thats all i use on my briskets.

my father in law has been in the cooking business all his life, never used any seasonings, after speaking to a friend and owner of a resturant who spoke to franklin, he switched to S&P (my father in law that is) and will always go that route.

i care not for all the fancy expensive rubs, brisket doesnt need much

Good recipe! I would probably throw in a little cayenne too for pop but the hot stuff's not for everyone.

Measure? Cmon...

I tried copyin a popdaddy video.... I guess I went by volume. In which case it wouldn't REALLY be no 50/50.... I just decided, I'll just pput on as much S/P as I think it oughta have. that works best for me. and that'sz what i'm gonna keep doing. And no I am never ever gonna squirt no pickle juice on there or pit foil on it or any of that. If I can't cook it right.... I won't cook it.

I know I said I don't care about tradition but I know some housewifes that boil a tasty brisket from start to finish. No foil, foiling is boiling.

For the record sorry about a double post, I don't not foil cause of Popdaddy videos. It's cause about 11 years ago, when I was dating my wife (Japanese lady) and Stationed in the Kanto area of Japan. I got off work early one day. I decided I'd cook her some fish so I went town to the store picked up some fresh salmon and veggies cut up the veggies and put them in foil packs with the fish and butter I thought it was great... My gal pretty much told me I ruined the fish, made it too mushy. After that I learned how to grill fish on the grate. Mostly Salmon, Mackeral and a really skinny oily fish pronounced Sama (translates to fall knife fish).. But if it swims I'll put it over the coals.

I just figured that if you make Fish too mushy in tin foil you also would make anything else (including Brisket) too mushy in foil.

anybody else here I'm not saying you are wrong and what you do might be better for you. I'm just saying what I do.

1 cup kosher salt to 1 cup coarse black pepper. I make up a bunch at a time since I use it on so many things. Any other seasonings I want to add just go on the meat separately.

I've cooked with John Lewis and I doubt that he is lying. "Never cooked a S&P brisket" could mean that he subbed some of the salt for Lowrey's or that he used S&P + a small amount of another spice. Or because he may not consider it a true S&P brisket because he sprays the meat with watered down Worcestershire sauce or pickle juice or unicorn tears.

I mix it and put it in a shaker bottle so I weigh it.
By weight 1 tbl of K salt & 1 Tbl of med grind Black pepper are not equal.
IIRC 1 tbl of K salt weighs 1 oz 4 tbl of the med grind black pepper weighs 1 oz

Bingo. That's the way I've always done it, with everything I've cooked.

BTW, this might be a little off topic, but am I the only one who doesn't believe the BBQ joints on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives when they reveal their top secret/award winning rubs and sauces? I've noticed more than a few times that the rubs they actually end up putting on the meat are a completely different color than what they whipped up.
I think Harrison Sapp at Southern Soul gave a pretty accurate description of his technique. One of the best episodes of DDD in my opinion.

meh i just poor it in a shaker until it looks close, i mean a pinch of a difference is not going to completely change the taste anyways.

If there is something other than water in his pressure cooker (it is called braising/water is steaming which is way too close to boiling in my book) it is not a "bbq foul" if finishing on a charcoal unit.

Bingo! That's my point exactly. It's the small minute things that are conveniently being passed off as just s&p.
