BBQ Rub vs. BBQ Seasoning
Often people get confused between barbeque rubs and seasonings. We’re here to highlight the differences between BBQ rubs and seasonings. The most significant difference between the two lies in how they are used. Dry rubs are added before cooking, and seasonings are used to season the chicken, which means it is sprinkled after cooking.

Basically, you can say that a dry rub is a seasoning used on uncooked chicken. And why is that great? Because of how convenient they are! Unlike marinades, BBQ rubs don’t require extra time to flavor the chicken before you pop it on the grill. Also, dry rubs deliver a crisp exterior - a hallmark of good BBQ! Trust us when we say nothing beats a dry rub when it comes to seasoning chicken.

That said, we might just have the perfect BBQ rub for your chicken - something you’ll love!
