The way we love coffee at our house is no secret.  Morning coffee, afternoon coffee, coffee with friends, even dessert coffee.  You name it.  We enjoy it.  So the idea of a coffee dry rub was bound to catch our attention as way to add a little pizzazz to our backyard grilling.

 

And while this easy Smoky Sweet Coffee won’t have your cookout favorites tasting like a full-bodied cup of joe, it does add a deep, subtle tone to any protein that’s only complimented by a light touch of brown sugar, garlic and the kick of chili and cayenne.
