Your coffee rub is the best. Thanks for the recipe. 
Did a spatch'd chicken (about 2 lbs) on the small tonight and used your rub. Didn't think to take pictures. 
I pulled the skin away form the meat and sprinkled the rub under and over the skin....the skin came out crispy and really favorable....we were fighting for the last piece. 
I used both the small woo and the mini woo to get the chicken higher in the dome. I think that was the key to the crispy skin. 
This cook is a keeper.

    Glad you liked it Joan. Thanksgiving is not far off. Linda will not eat a steak w/o it.

    Staying on subject:
    Rub, "Kona Koast Rainbow Rub", #3, W/Worcestershire Sauce, Richard Fl
    My friend, Al Katz-- AKA Hungry Man from the BGE Forum, recently returned from some "R" & "R" in Hawaii summer '09 and brought back some Hawaiian Sea Salt and Kona Coffee beans. Asked me to make a coffee based rub. Did not have enough Kona coffee, (too D@%* expensive), so added a few others to make a decent size batch. Started with the great recipe Molly Shark has been sharing for several years and one found on the internet, made a few modifications.Thanks Al and Molly
    24 Ozs    Kona Koffee & Brazalian Arabica Beans, Ground fine  
    8 Ozs.    Hawaiian Sea Salt, White, add salt after the other ingredients so as not to over salt the rub  
    20 Ozs.    Turbindo Sugar  
    4 Ozs.    Indian River Rainbow Pepper or regular restaurant grind black pepper  
    8 Ozs    Black Pepper, Restaurant Grind  
    36 Ozs.    Legg's or Char-Broil Pulled Pork Rub, or Pork rub of Choice  
    4 Ozs    Chipotle, Fine Ground  
    6 Ozs    Red Pepper, Fine Grind  
    8 Ozs    Worcestershire Sauce, Powder  
    2 Ozs    Hickory Smoke, Powder  
    1 Measure each item by weight. If not fine ground, run thru a coffee grinder. Each item by itself. Screen thru a vegetable wire strainer to get larger pieces out- re-grind them. Mix all together.
    Yield: 7 1/2 Lbs

    Mine is pretty much like Mickey's, but I don't use Ancho powder, I use regular coffee, finely ground.  Also, for fajitas, I put some Liquid Smoke in.(laugh if you will, but the fast cook of the flap steak doesn't allow enough time to get a smokey taste from wood chunks, and I like that taste in my fajitas).

    I don't measure any of the ingredients out, so each time I make it, it's probably a little different.

    Sometimes, simplicity is best.
