Mickey's Coffee Rub good on spare ribs?

RRPRRP Posts: 18,926
Thought I might mix up a batch and try it on my spares tomorrow - I just haven't followed the the MCR threads enough to know if it works there. Will it knock my socks off?

    I brewed Mickey's coffee rub by mistake and it was the best freaking coffee I have never tasted. :P

    I've tried it on beef and pork ribs...both were good. Will it knock your socks off? I don't know as that's subjective. I think the coffee rub really sings on poultry, but it does a good job everywhere else too.
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....
  • Interesting, I have put this coffee rub on chicken, turkey, pork loins and everyone loves it. But I never have tried it on ribs.  I'm waiting to see the review on this.

    I found this post...not THE (Mickey's) coffee rub, but it does support the theory that coffee rub+ribs= good.  



    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I think the coffee rub really benefits from some direct time maybe after the roast if you crisped them up with some direct cooking? Just thinking out loud I may be way off

    I will report back! What really surprised me was that I was able to find the very brand of instant expresso that Mickey recommended. I mean he's down there in a large market in TX and I'm up here shopping in a 110K community in IL. I found it at Kroger!

    Ron: that is the ONLY brand I have ever seen in decades of shopping. Not to say there aren't other brands, but not in my stores.

  • Ron...I found it too in small grocery stores in Des Moines. ..I was suprised as well

    The Hy Vee stores in Cedar Rapids all stock it but I have to order ancho from Penzey's unless I want to buy it 1 oz. at a time.

    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.

    Ron my Wife, daughter and Grandgirls are 100% for steaks, chicken and turkey. I think it outstanding on beef ribs. Will try on pork after you report back (tough not to use Bad Byrons Butt Rub on them).
