Grill and smoke BBQ rubs are dry spice blends that add flavor to meats when grilling or smoking.
They include ingredients such as paprika, garlic, onion powder, chili powder, and brown sugar. Rub the mixture onto the meat before grilling or smoking to enhance the flavor of your BBQ.
If you’re using a dry rub, make sure to pat the meat dry before applying the rub. This will help the seasoning stick to the meat.
Experiment with different blends of spices and seasonings to find your favorite flavor profile. Some popular ingredients in BBQ rubs include paprika, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, and brown sugar.
