Chili Pepper Rub


Chili Pepper Rub for Brisket

This is a good, simple rub for beef, particularly barbecue brisket. You can adjust the heat by using either hot or mild chili powder.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 green chili finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne
  • ground black pepper

Mix all ingredients together. Pack all around a 10 pound brisket and refrigerate 24 hours before smoking. Place in smoker, careful not to dislodge the rub. Smoke for 8 hours. Store this rub in an airtight container in a cool dark place. It is best to not store this rub too long or the brown sugar will harden and clump.
