After all those April showers we’ve been getting, it is FINALLY time to whip out that BBQ! While it may be easy to throw some BBQ sauce on your meat of choice for an easy supper, try taking some time to create a beautiful dry rub that will take your meats to the next level and taste like restaurant quality. A dry rub can be as simple as salt and pepper, or as elaborate as including garlic, brown sugar and paprika. There’s really no wrong way to do it, but here are a few ideas to get you started this spring so you can be a pro dry rub chef by the summer.


1. Buffalo Dry Rub

This sweet and spicy dry rub will help you take your meat game to the next level and have your guests thinking they’re at a southwest steakhouse.


2. Chicken Dry Rub

Put Swiss Chalet to shame with this mouth watering dry rub. It won’t just be another chicken dinner – it will be a fantastic chicken FEAST!


3. Basic BBQ Rub

Looking for a quick rub to go on any meat? Here’s your recipe! Try it out on pork, steak or chicken and you won’t be disappointed. It’s a easy way to get into the Dry Rub game, but I promise you, once you try it out, you’ll never be able to go back!

4. Rib and Chicken Rub

Much like the basic dry rub, this is a versatile meat rub. It’s a little more complex, but so is the flavor! Mix these fantastic spices and sugars together to create one scrumptious meal.

5. BBQ Spice Rub

For this delicious rub, the dried thyme brings in a great twist to your average BBQ Dry Rub. Add to your favorite BBQ meat and you will be taken off guard by how delicious this is!



6. Smokin’ Summer Spice Dry Rub

A lovely blend a smokey summer notes that will have you dreaming of long summer days!


7. Texas Style Dry Rub

Take it down south with this dry rub that stores easily in a sweet little mason jar and adds a kick to your supper.


8. Italian Herb Rub

Sometimes dry rubs are all about the Italian flavor! It’s super simple and adds that home cooked Italian taste to your chicken, pork or fish.


9. Sweet and Smokey

This concoction of incredible spices and sugars sounds absolutely to die for! I can’t wait to try this out on my next BBQ meal.



10. Jamaican Jerk Rub
