Default Celery seed rub for Brisket?

A couple years ago my wife and I attended a cookoff in Seattle and we met a guy from Chicago cooking on WSM's, we were talking cookers etc. and he carved off some brisket samples, he said he used celery seed for the rub. I talked to alot of people that day and had quite a few samples and I don't recall it rockin my world or anything but she asked him about the ingredients and wrote them down but lost them in the black hole she calls a purse, now any time I do a brisket she brings up this rub. I've done searches and no luck with any celery seed based rubs. I could use some advice pro or con if anyones heard or used anything like this.
She won't let it go!

Try adapting a standard rub mix by adding the celery seed in the same ammount as the rest of the ingredients, usually a tbls. of it.

celery seed seems to be big in this area.

a simple quick rub I've used is
1tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp celery salt (I originall heard it as 1 tsp, but I'm not a huge fan of the flavor.)
1/2 tsp gran garlic
1/2 tsp black pepper

I used to know a guy that packed his ribs with curry and celery seed.
I tried my best to keep him out of my kitchen.

I'd be surprised that celery seed or celery salt would be standout ingredient for his rub... especially if he was willing to give out his entire recipe to you.

I've used it in some homemade rubs in the past but I'm not a big fan of it.

Good luck,,, if you use it, use it sparingly.

Like I said, it was not an earth shattering piece of meat. Maybe an ethnic or regional type of seasoning he prefferred, I've seen it called for in some boiled meat dishes and cabbage rolls etc.

I have it in most of my beef rubs.
Here is a start for you
1/4 cup celery salt
1/4 cup onion salt
1/4 cup garlic salt
1/4 cup seasoning salt
from there add what you like, will need pepper, chili, sugar and ? it's your call.
