Default Brisket Rub

So I'm throwing my first brisket into my UDS and looking for a good rub recipe. I'm not into buying any pre-made rubs and would prefer concocting one myself. I got this one that I was going to try from Amazingribs.com but let me know your thoughts.

Ingredients
3 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
2 tablespoons table salt
1 tablespoon granulated white sugar
1 tablespoon onion powder
2 teaspoons mustard powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons chili or ancho powder
1 teaspoon chipotle or cayenne powder

My personal opinion is that of many others on this forum. If it's your first brisket go with salt and pepper. Nothing more, nothing less. Again, just my opinion. They're still some of my faaaavorite briskets to eat, but my family prefers them doctored up a bit.

What I usually end up doing for them is some salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder, with some red pepper thrown in for a kick. I put the same ingredients into some beef stock and inject it as well.

Sounds like a good rub, but for beef I would leave the sugar out.

Thanks for the input all, think I'll stick to a plain rub to begin with. What sauces would you recommend post cook? I fancied a nice Heinz BBQ honey sauce? bearing in mind I'm on the 'other side of the pond' so we don't get many of the sauces you guys get

I like Sweet on Pork - Spicy and/ or Tangy on Beef.

Sweet Baby Rays on Pork and Stubbs on Beef. KC Masterpiece Original is OK on Beef. I thin them all.

I love meathead's rub for beef. I use it on brisket, beef ribs, tri tip, etc etc. haven't really found anything beef related I didn't like it on. I tried it without the sugar, couldn't really tell a difference. It's a pretty bold rub flavor wise, so any sweetness is lost under the pepper, ancho, chipotle and mustard.

As an after sauce, I find mustard sauces to be real good with Brisket.

A simple one is:

1/2 c yellow mustard
1/4 c spicy brown mustard
2 tsp worchestershire
2 tbls Dark brown sugar
3/4 c apple cider vinegar
2 tsp sea salt
2 tbls fresh ground pepper
1 1/2 tbls butter
2 tsp molasses
2 tsp hot sauce

I bring this to just under a boil and stir it continually.

Also I've found it more to my taste to not use the hot sauce and use a nice brown mustard instead of the spicy one.

I think that rub will work great, but I too would leave the sugar out. I'd probably cut the amount of salt in half as well, but I'm into low salt, low (to no) sugar rubs. Nobody ever asks me why there isn't enough salt and sugar in my rub.

If you can fresh grind your own pepper, I find this makes a huge difference.
