The Tastiest Grilling Trend of the Summer: Dry Rubs

As the weather heats up, there is nothing better than grilling outdoors. Not only will you get a great tasting meal, but you will keep your home cooler by not heating up the oven. To make mealtime preparation even faster, instead of marinating your meats, simply use a dry rub.

To make each seasoning mix, toss all ingredients together. Coat the surface of the meat with the rub, let sit for approximately ten minutes, and toss it on the grill. These rubs are great on all types of meats and seafood.
