Brisket Rub

Yes, I am aware, this is February, and yes, I am TOTALLY aware we have more than a foot of snow on the ground. I am also aware, I am starving for Brisket, and with the current state of pandemic/panic, I’m not going out for it if anyplace close actually did good brisket.

Enter my youngest, who was searching for a slow cooker. And enter the thoughts of slow roasting a brisket in a slow cooker. As with all things, BBQ related, it all starts with a good rub.
