Coffee can be used as a great way to start your day...or end it, at the grill. The dark and toasty undertones from the coffee in this dry rub pair well with dark meats. Any freshly ground coffee beans will work; choose dark roast for the biggest coffee flavor or a lighter roast if you’re looking for something a little more subtle. Use on: Chicken thighs, duck, beef, lamb Make Ahead Tip: Store in an airtight container for up to 1 month.

Yum. It doesn't get any easier than this. I marinated a rib eye steak for about 4 hours and then grilled it. Such a nice flavor without being overbearing. I still have enough left to try it on something else too. Thanks CaliforniaJan for sharing. Made for ZWT9.
