Bringing an old thread back.

Here's a great series on BBQ'ing from Aaron Franklin (of Franklin of Austin, TX fame). Good info. I am down with the "just S&P" for seasoning to let the meat shine through (I do add a bit of paprika, garlic, onion depending on the meat, cut, etc).

That's the PBS site, but google him for youtube and you'll find more. Great info on the basics.
anytime i do a brisket all i season it with is salt and pepper. if it's pork, i play around with seasonings. i've tried making my own dry rubs but the stuff my brother throws together is always better, so i sometimes i just steal some of his.
