Different brisket rub recipes include simple salt and pepper, traditional Texas-style with salt, pepper, garlic, paprika, and other spices, and Asian-style with cilantro, turmeric, cumin, coriander, and sesame seeds. Commercial rubs are also available.

There are several different brisket rub recipes, many of which are simple and contain largely the same ingredients — including salt, pepper, and garlic powder — in varying amounts. For a top-quality cut of brisket, a simple salt and pepper rub may be the best choice, because it will bring out the flavor of the meat. A traditional Texas-style tea towel is made from salt, pepper, garlic, paprika, and a few other spices; it goes well on brisket and most other cuts of meat that will be simmered for a long time. Some more distinctive types of brisket rubs include an Asian variety that uses cilantro, a hot Tex-Mex type that uses red chili peppers for intense heat, and some recipes that include freshly ground coffee for a smoky flavor when the beef is done cooking. . While making a rub mix at home is generally easy to make, there are also many premade commercial brisket rub mixes, some of which contain several dozen spices and have won nationwide contest awards in the United States.

A very basic type of rub, sometimes called a Dalmatian rub because of its color, is made from equal amounts of coarse kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper. The rub can be applied to a good quality tip 30 to 60 minutes before cooking. This type of rub might be the best choice when the flavor of the meat is intended to stand out, or when things like smoke flavor, a broom sauce, or a marinade are supposed to be the major taste component.

The best touch of brisket is often the one that gives the meat some traditional barbecue flavors. A Texas- or Memphis-style, Tennessee-style rub can do just that without requiring a huge ingredient list. These rubs generally include salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, oregano, and cayenne pepper, all in various proportions. Some variations on the basic Texas-style rub recipe include adding brown sugar to accent the meat or ingredients such as cumin, chili powder, mustard powder, onion powder, and lemon pepper.

For a more distinct and less traditional brisket rub, an Asian-style rub can be made from turmeric, cumin, coriander, salt, cinnamon, onion powder, and sesame seeds. Freshly ground coffee can be included in the rubs so the grounds roast slowly and develop an earthy, smoky flavor that eventually carries over into the meat. If all else fails, a commercially sold repeating brisket rub might be a good choice, because it will most likely be well-balanced and the label will likely indicate exactly how the finished brisket will be affected by the rub.
