Before you apply your dry rub to your meat, make sure you pat your meat down with a paper towel to remove as much moisture as you can. Next you need a binder to help the dry rub stick to the meat.

You can use an egg wash, olive oil or even yellow mustard. I prefer to use Olive Oil most of the time. Once the binder has been applied to the meat, liberally apply the dry rub all over the meat.

Make sure you take the proper precautions to not cross-contaminate! I suggest you use one hand to apply the dry rub and the other to rub the dry rub into the meat.
