My go to steak rub is equal parts:

Kosher salt
Lawry's season salt
Granulated garlic
Onion Salt
Ground black pepper

Not my creation. Saw this on Food Network and Man v. Food when they visited Cattleman's in Oklahoma City. I've never used it on brisket but use it on beef ribs regularly.

The last brisket I did was rubbed with
Salt, Pepper, Granulated Garlic, Onion Powder and montreal steak seasoning.

I see a lot of guys use Lawrys Season instead of the steak seasoning.

I`m not a big fan of raw cane sugar even if it melts during the cook.(Depending on application and cook time.)I like better the sweetness come from seeds and buds such as anise, fennel, star anise, clove and allspice.Also not a big fan of cinnamon as I have found some rubs(Disclaimer...Have`nt tasted many available commercial rubs) have been three notes...Salt, sugar or both, then an overpowering cinnamon or something else, then right to heat from pepper.The intermediate flavors are what I like the most.
My rub not by weight or amounts as I`m not really a recipe guy as I go by flavor as as spices age they loose flavor and I dont toast the seeds and pods as they will be toasted at the time of the cook.By the way this is based on Paul Prudhomme`s original mix that I got back in the early 80`s.

Salt (Kosher or sea)
Granulated garlic
Granulated onion
coriander seeds
Cumin seeds
Anise seeds
Fennel seeds(Wild)
Star anise pods
Allspice berries
Black pepper
And your choice of dried whole Chili peppers
Sometimes dried thyme and or oregano was added

All ground so as not to develop heat in the grinder.

This is my favorite pork rub when I make it myself:


The three signature ingredients I add are ginger, cinnamon and cocoa powder.
