Flaming Rooster Bold Brisket Rub

Yields1 ServingPrep Time15 minsTotal Time15 mins

The famous Flaming Rooster Bold Brisket rub will give your brisket a well balanced flavor, leaving your mouth with a subtle spice kick at the end of every bite.

 2 tbsp Garlic Powder
 3 tbsp Kosher Salt
 1 tbsp Chili Powder
 2 tbsp Onion Powder
 2 tbsp Black Ground Pepper
 1 tbsp Dried Parsley
 2 tbsp Cayenne Pepper
 2 tbsp Minced Garlic (dried)
 2 tbsp Smoked Paprika (or Paprika)

Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl until it is completely blended. Smash any clumps with a spoon if necessary.


Remove the brisket from the plastic and rinse with water.  Pat the brisket dry and put on a baking sheet or large pan.


Use an adhesive to rub all over the brisket so the rub can stick to the brisket. Options include Yellow Mustard, Olive Oil or Water. Don't worry, with the long cook there won't be any flavor impact to using mustard or olive oil.


Generously apply the rub with your hands all over the brisket evenly - the thicker you have the rub on the better the flavor and crust on the brisket.


Cover the brisket in cellophane and store in the refrigerator for 8 - 12 hours. If you don't have the time, 1 hour will do the trick as well.


Remove the brisket from the refrigerator an hour before you put it on the smoker. The closer you can get it to room temperature the better.
