This brisket rub and method makes a wonderful, juicy, brisket. I make this using my smoker-it has the directions for cooking it in a grill as well but I've never tried it this way. I always use about a 5 pound brisket when I make this. My brisket is usually done in about 6 hours. Be sure to use an instant read thermometer. I insert one in the thick part of the brisket when I feel it's getting close to being done and I just leave it in the meat till the desired temperature is reached. Instead of apple juice I mix 3/4 cup vegetable oil and 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar-it works just as well. I also put the rub on the night before, wrap it real good in plastic wrap and then with foil and leave it in the fridge all night. Since I do this in the smoker, I soak enough chips to fill up my wood box as opposed to the 4 cups you will need for the grill. You don't have to change the wood chips as the meat will only take on so much smoke. If your using a smoker just check the water pan everytime you open the smoker to baste. I got this from the foodnetwork website. Be sure to let this rest after cooking-it's a very important step. You won't be disappointed. I also prepare Neely's BBQ sauce for this and it's delicious!
