Brisket Mustard Rub

Haven’t used a Brisket Mustard Rub?  Well, you’re missing out. The mustard helps the other seasoning to adhere to the surface of the meat while imparting a delicious flavor. As the brisket smokes, the mustard flavor virtually disappears. What will be left behind is all the flavor of the rub and the slightest hint of mustard.

Cuisine American BBQ


  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated onion
  • 2 teaspoons granulated garlic
  • 2 teaspoons ancho chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  • Combine listed ingredients in a small bowl. Apply directly to all outer surfaces of brisket and cook as directed. For best results, marinate brisket in the refrigerator for 4-8 hours before placing onto the smoker. Discard any leftover rub that has come into contact with raw meat.
  • If making ahead of time, store prepared mustard rub in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days after preparation. Do not freeze.
