If you like cooking with coffee, be sure and try my BBQ Coffee Dry Rub recipe. BBQ Coffee Dry Rub is the perfect rub for kicking up your chicken, beef, or pork. It infuses your taste buds with a sweet slightly nutty flavor and can be kicked up with some heat if you double up on the cayenne pepper. 

Variations

  • If you are not a big cumin fan, you can back off the seasoning to only 2 tablespoons.
  • Try switching out some of the chili powder for mace. Mace is perfect where nutmeg would be too heavy. It pairs well with the orange in this recipe.
