Texas Rub for Brisket


Texas Rub for Brisket

The perfect Texas style rub for a Texas style brisket. While this rub is meant for a low and slow beef brisket, you can certainly use it on beef ribs and barbecued chuck roasts.
Course: Rubs
Cuisine: American BBQ


  • 1/3 cup paprika (not smoked)
  • 3 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons mild chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons granulated onion
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons granulated garlic
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coarse ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano


  • Combine rub ingredients in a bowl. Apply evenly all over brisket or beef ribs and cook as directed.
  • Store in an air tight container in the cupboard for up to 1 year after preparation.
  • Discard if rub has come into contact with raw meat.
  • This is enough rub for one large brisket, or two full racks of beef ribs.
