Ask the Chef

Q: I’m ready for BBQ! What is the difference between a dry rub and a wet rub and how do I know what one I should use? 


A: Great question! A dry rub is a blend of spices that you can add on to anything that you’ll be grilling quickly and that wont tenderize much, like a high quality steak, chicken breast or shrimp.


A wet rub may be the exact same spice blend, but turned into a paste using olive oil, beer, wine, melted butter, or anything else wet. You should use a wet rub any time you’re going to going to slow cook. Ribs, a whole chicken, tri tip, etc. 


Happy Grilling!
