Dry Rub VS Wet Rub

If you have a dry rub that has started to cake or clump what can you do?  I was asked this during a recent cooking demonstration.  The answers are 1. Use a spice grinder to break up the clumps; 2. Use a blender to break it  upor -my favorite answer - add some olive oil and make it a wet rub or marinade. 

Whenever you buy a prepared dry rub or even if you make it your self, there comes a time when they may clump up due to humidity or other reasons.  Don't throw it out it is still good for other uses.  A wet Rub is just that - a rub that you use wet instead of dry.  A marinade has more liquid.  That is really the only difference.
