Coarse salt and pepper really will work great, sometimes I will venture off that path. I suggest Meat Church’s Holy Cow paired with 2 Gringos Chupacabra Brisket Magic, everyone loves this combo. Put the Holy Cow on first as the seasonings are more coarse than the brisket magic. Most importantly, remember to burn a good clean fire with plenty of oxygen. Let us know how it turns out!

Personally, I like kosher salt and coarse ground black pepper. Might try what TTU hunter suggested above. Also, taste also comes from the type of wood you are using, as well.

Bohlners Fajita seasoning and course cracked pepper. The Fajita seasoning is very fine and sticks to the meat, don’t be shy with it, cover it very well, then lots of pepper!

Honestly, just pick a rub with the flavor profile you enjoy. Everyone loves to say, "Only salt & pepper" these days because they heard Aaron Franklin say it, but there are plenty of good ways to do it. Onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne or paprika if you want some heat, etc. all are great in a brisket rub.

Plenty of store bought rubs are great. Salt Lick Original, as mentioned already, is very good, as I'm sure most of them are.

Your cooking execution is more important than the rub, in my opinion.

Incorrect. Texas has been salt and pepper only for brisket for decades. Ever herd of Lockhart and Taylor? Franklin didn't invent Central Texas style bbq.

I use stuff like you said though. LOL.

"Texas" hasn't always been just salt & pepper. That's the Central Texas style of cooking it, and it's obviously gained nationwide notoriety, but there are plenty of places in Central Texas that don't follow it. One of my good friends is the pit master at a Central Texas joint that sells out almost every day, and he uses more than salt & pepper in his rub.

It's one way of doing it. It's not the only way and has never been. And no one ever cared until Franklin said it and suddenly you can't possibly cook a brisket with anything but salt & pepper.

AND IF YOU USE SAUCE, SO HELP ME GOD! No, but really, I like sauce too.

Horse**** generalization.....I have seen salt and pepper talk for a long dang time.Long before Aaron Franklin started pimping it....even on here. Is it more popular now? Sure but so is smoking meat in general. Maybe its just seems like that to you because you just started?
