Rub, Glaze or Marinate
Seasoning your food for the grill can be as simple as a dash of salt and pepper, or as rich and complex as a homemade marinade with fresh ingredients.
Here you’ll find some of our favorite spice rubs, fruit sauce recipes and more. We’ve included some of our super-versatile signature spice rubs, plus robust blends you can use as marinades or dipping sauces.
How to Combine Dry Rub with Sauce
When it comes to enhancing the flavors and textures of grilled food, dry rubs are hard to beat. These blends of spices and seasonings add deep flavor to meat without any extra moisture. This makes it easier to achieve a perfect sear with a crusty exterior and tender, juicy interior.
Marinades can deliver fantastic flavor as well, but they make it harder to achieve the kind of sear you want on the grill. Instead of marinating your protein, use a dry rub first and then brush your meat with a sauce or glaze later in the grilling process. We recommend doing this a few minutes before removing your meat from the grill for an extra layer of flavor that won’t interfere with the texture.
Spice Up Any Occasion
We offer a dozen different rubs in our collection and have included some of our favorites below. Each one is versatile enough for your favorite grill-ready veggies, meat, seafood and fruit. We’ve also gathered some noteworthy salts and seasonings worth adding to your collection.

Sourced from the Camargue area of France, this coarse, flavorful salt bears the signature of the salt raker who harvested it by hand. It’s gorgeously packaged, and the salt inside it just as striking. Enjoy as a finishing salt on grilled meat, fish or even dessert.
