A dry rub is made up of spices and herbs and can either be sprinkled on the meat or applied literally on the meat. A wet rub is made up of a liquid ingredient and is coated over the meat. The advantage of a wet rub is that it sticks to the meat better.

Adding wood chips

The good news about adding wood chips is that you don’t need to have a smoker grill to enjoy the perfect flavor that originates from using wood chips. Wood chips can be added to either gas or charcoal grills. Some grills come with smoker box built right into the grill.
