Summer is quickly approaching, and grilling season is coming right along with it. But what if you are tired of all the boring hot dogs and cheeseburgers that are such common summer fare? Maybe you are looking for a meal with a little more spice. Fortunately, dry rubs for steak, chicken, and fish are an easy way to add some variety to your summer cuisine with minimal effort and maximum taste.

Gourmet dry rubs for chicken, beef, and other meats are made of coarsely-ground dried spices and herbs mixed with salt, sugar, or pepper. Spice rubs may also be mixed with various condiments to create a moist marinade. Soft, tender herbs such as basil and chives are difficult to preserve, so woody herbs like oregano and rosemary are more popular choices for dry rubs. To prepare, the meat is scored and coated in the rub, then left to sit anywhere from 15 minutes to several hours before it is grilled or baked.

Beef brisket dry rubs are the most popular dry rubs for summer grilling due to the wide variety of flavors available. Sweet brisket is made with brown sugar, paprika, chili powder, salt, and pepper, and pairs nicely with barbecue sauce. For a spicier dry rub brisket, try adding garlic, onion powder, and cayenne pepper to a rub with chili powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.

In addition to bringing new and exciting flavors to the table, beef brisket dry rubs have the benefit of being healthy for you. Herbs and spices are high in B-vitamins and trace minerals, and have antibacterial and antiviral properties. They also contain antioxidants, vitamins, phyto-sterols, and essential oils, which boost immunity levels to help bodies fight against germs and toxins.

Spice rubs can be used on any meat, as long as it will be dry-cooked. Smoking, baking, and grilling are all great ways to prepare a rubbed meat. With so many health benefits and flavor options, it is easy to see why spice rubs are becoming the go-to culinary choice for summer grillmasters everywhere.
