11 tablespoons ground pepper

7 tablespoons kosher salt 

3 tablespoons seasoning salt 

1 tablespoon granulated garlic 

Brisket:

One 10- to 12-pound beef brisket

1 cup pickle juice 

1 cup mustard 

Directions

Special equipment:

  1. For the Firehole brisket rub: Stir together the pepper, salt, seasoning salt and granulated garlic.
  2. For the brisket: Preheat a smoker for cooking at about 225 degrees F.
  3. Trim the fat on the brisket down to 1/4 inch.
  4. Mix pickle juice and mustard in a bowl, then rub the brisket with the mixture all over. Season brisket with enough dry rub to cover (1/2 to 1 cup). Place meat in smoker fat-side up and cook for 12 hours.
