Mickey's Coffee Rub

Whipped up some of Mickey's coffee rub for the first time today. Tried it on a couple of BSCB. They were awesome! If you haven't tried it, I would highly recommend. Thanks Mickey!

    We use it on beef, pork, turkeys, and chicken. Best tip I can give is buy your ancho in the bulk spice area.

    I have bought my ancho from Penzey's.  A pound was about $14.00 + S&H.  Reasonable price and good quality.  They are in Wisconsin, not too far from the Great White North.

    @Nanook - The Silk Road spice shop in Calgary has a good ancho powder. Not sure if they have a shop in Edmunchuck, worth looking into. I ordered by mail once, but the shipping cost as much as the product. Attached article says they may be in Edmonton:

    +1 with @bettysnephes - Penzey's has good ancho. Shipping from Penzey's to a Canadian address can be quite expensive, I'm close enough to the border I use a US drop service and then drive down a get it. Orders over $30 they ship free to a US address.

    Looked for the recipe and found it here.  I would like to make this.  Does it matter if I use real espresso vs. the instant version used in the recipe?

    I have been wanting to try this. Is it great on briskets? I am doing one in couple weeks. Might be perfect time to try.

    I tried that rub on some chicken yesterday and the comments were 'BEST chicken EVER' no really! the best!
    I did cheap out and only bought 1 bottle of ancho (McCormicks gourmet)and used nescafe espresso, to lazy to run back for a second bottle but still did well with it.

    You did chicken yesterday after the eggfest? Didn't you get enough to eat down at the pier?

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    That is great to hear.

    I hate being THAT guy but does anyone have a link or list for what is involved with the recipe?

    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.

    It's time to make some. I typically want to follow a recipe exactly but I'm wondering on the coffee brand. I will need to order from somewhere like Amazon to get the Medaglia's brand. Can I substitute for another brand?

    Just wanted to thank you for the recommendation on Silk Road Spices.  I put an order in and received it the next day.  Since I was going to pay shipping I loaded up!  The good folks at Silk Road even through in some extra goodies in my order and it's not like I ordered huge (~$50).  But ancho was definitely in there.

    I have found whole dried Ancho Peppers at some Ethnic grocery stores and just grind them up.

    Check the Mexican section of your grocery store ?

    @Nanook FWIW there are no reviews on the Amazon.com item below but I ordered some to try it out.  They ship to Alaska so I'm assuming they'll ship to you, too.  It didn't qualify for free shipping but I ordered QTY = 3 and it was less than $10 shipping to me.  (QTY = 1 was around $7 S/H so I wanted to maximize my shipping fees).

    It's a bit of a risk, I know, but I'll report back with a follow up to give my opinion on quality.

    Sorry I missed your question, @tksmoke.  I'm in the Mat-Su Valley region now.  I've moved around quite a bit over the past twenty-seven years, though.
