Brisket Rub Recipe
A brisket rub may include herbs like oregano, thyme, garlic and spices like pepper, chili, and cumin. Seasonings like salt and sugar are also added. Sugar helps to caramelize the meat and salt brings out the flavor. A wet rub may have some oil or vinegar in it. The rub can be made at home and stored in an air tight jar for future use.
