Coffee Rub

You've seen it in several previous posts: Sizzle Grove's favorite dry rub ingredient for large chunks of meat, particularly brisket or other large beef roasts.  We're coffee addicts. Here's a convenient recipe for coffee spice rub:

1.5 tsp Ground coffee
4 tbsp Brown sugar
2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Black pepper
0.5 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Onion powder
1 tsp Garlic powder
Pinch Cayenne or hot pure chili powder
1 tsp Smoked paprika

In case you need some inspiration... try this rub on a smoked roast beef!  Just apply rub on a beef roast, cook for about 45 minutes a pound at 225 Fahrenheit (for medium-rare), turning at even intervals, and baste every hour with a mix of 75% balsamic vinegar to 25% olive oil, plus crushed garlic and a dash of coffee.

Raw + dry rub:

Hey Nick,

My name is Gregory Post. First off, I love your blog!! I just acquired my first smoker after years of standard charcoal and propane grilling. This sit has been a great tool in my adventures and I was wondering if you would like any contributions from my area of expertise (independent New England craft breweries). I would request no compensation and would promote the heck out of this blog. I would be willing to contribute as many beer reviews as necessary and could suggest food options for possible pairing. However I can help the Sizzle...sizzle.....would be wonderful.

All the best and keep firing up!
