This is a recipe from Jim Fanto, by way of Masterbuilt’s Facebook Group (My Masterbuilt Electric Smoker.) Jim hails from Texas and is a retired Army Airborne Ranger. He was nice enough to share his secret BBQ brisket rub recipe with group members. If you have a Masterbuilt smoker, join the group, try his recipe and give him a big shout-out. And while you’re at it, join me in thanking America’s Armed Services Veterans for their bravery and dedication.
