Kansas City Style Brisket Dry Rub Recipe

By focusing on sweet and savory flavors, a Kansas City style brisket dry rub differentiates itself from the salt- and spice-heavy rubs so common in other barbecue regions. A large helping of brown sugar lays the base for a dry rub that seals in your beef’s natural juices, keeping it moist and tender during low and slow smoking.
