Hi Frank, it seems like 50/50 salt and pepper is a popular go-to for rub/seasoning.

Heres a simple method from Traeger’s site that would be a good first try:


Let us know how it comes out!

I did another recipe from Treager. It had a good tast but it seemed over cooked. It broke apart like shredded beef. The recipe called for internal temp of 204.

Smoked another brisket this weekend, pulled it off at internal temp of 198 and straight to rest in a cooler for a couple hours. I found it to be perfect!!

I find that my Traeger probe reads 10 degrees warmer than my Fireboard probe. With such high variations on sensors how can you really know what your temps are? BTW, I trust my Fireboard probe over the Traeger probe.
