Coffee Rub... WOW!

Mickey is the one who made me aware of this rub, but I understand it's sort of a mod of blends from Hungryman (Al), Richard FL and Monica (MollyShark, I assume).

All I know is I spatched a chicken last night using MY version of Coffee Rub and it may have been the best chicken I have ever had! I think the original blend calls for equal parts of everything. I reduced the salt quite a bit as I am now on a low sodium diet so adjust if you wish, but MAN, THAT WAS GOOD!!!

Here\'s my version...

  • 2 Tbls Instant Espresso Ground coffee
  • 2 Tbls Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tbls black pepper
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 Tbls garlic powder
  • 4-1/2 tsp (1-1/2 Tbls) ancho chili powder

This will be good for at least 2, maybe 3 whole chickens, even with a liberal application.

Not sure if it was the coffee or the Ancho (or both), but this was an outstanding rub!! Raised direct at 400°.

THANKS to ALL!!!, Michael

Had this tonight and the rub provided a great flavour, super tasty and will be using again for sure. For those in the UK like me I got the Ancho Chilli powder online from Souschef.

What is instant espresso? Is finely ground espresso roast okay?

I use this all the time, and make sure Red Eye BBQ Sauce which really enhance the rub on pork tenderloins. Did those at the 2015 Porkopolis Eggfest.
