- A dry spice rub is a fast, simple alternative to a marinade that is applied to meat before it is cooked. Rubs are easy to make and work great on chicken, meat and fish. Combine the above ingredients. Cover the meat with the spice mixture and rub it into the meat to release the flavor. You can preserve any extra rub for use later. Use this basic technique with different spices.
