You’ll want to perfect these before football season starts up in a few weeks! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Thanks Mickey for the rub!

Did up a batch of your coffee rub and put it on a bone in turkey breast. Hit it with some peach smoke amazing. The rub is fantastic and even though it doesn't need it because its yours it gets my stamp of approval.

Rubbed heavily under the skin

    From Mickey Coffee Rub (turkey, chicken, beef & pork) Equal part: Instant Expresso Ground coffee Equal part: Brown Sugar ½ part: Black Pepper ½ part: Kosher Salt ½ part: Garlic Powder ¾ part: Ancho Chili Powder Don't worry on exact, just close on measurement. I used to use turbinado sugar but we like with brown better. This is pulled from MollyShark, Hungry Man, & Richard In Fl then tweaked. I find the ancho chili powder is far less expensive in the bulk spice area than the bottled area ( have used both light or dark version). I make it starting with a half cup Instant Expresso Ground coffee and work from there as it seems to store well if sealed. I didn't use ancho chili powder I had some dried New Mexico chillis I ran through a spice grinder to substitute.

    Looks great! I made a huge batch of coffee rub from Lou Lamberts who won a award for his rub in Austin, Tx. I'll give Mickey's a try when I run out. Never used it on turkey though.   

    How do you like the peach wood? I haven't used it yet and might just pick some up when I go get lump this week.

    I'm kinda obsessed with the peach right now it's super fragrant and a light sweet smoke. I did a pork butt, the turkey, chicken and brats al have been great. It doesn't over power at all. Similar to apple.but a bit sweeter.

    I will pick some up this week and give it a shot this weekend. Supposed to get a huge blizzard today, but so far all we have is rain. Typically in Oklahoma it will be sunny and 60 in a couple days and I can get back to grilling..

    Thanks! I might as well pick up a turkey breast and give the coffee rub a try for lunches next week too.

    That is some nice looking turkey. I am different from you. I use the breast just to hold the legs on the grill and not fall off.....  Very nice...

    I agree on the dark meat. My wife's company gave these out during thanksgiving and this was just taking up room in the freezer.
