Brown sugar and coffee spiced codfish

Mickey recently gave me this rub which he pulled from MollyShark, Hungry Man, & Richard In FL and then tweaked:

Equal part: Instant Espresso Ground Coffee
(I use fresh ground Espresso)
Equal part: Brown Sugar
1/2 part: Black Pepper
1/2 part: Kosher Salt
1/2 part: Garlic Powder
3/4 part: Ancho Chili Powder

He said it was good on turkey, chicken (it was), beef & pork; but what about fish?  So here it is on a pair of 1/2 pound each nearly one-inch thick cod fillets ready for the large BGE:


I rarely cook fish by temperature, but I stuck a cooking probe in length wise and put the fillets on an elevated rig with the BGE at 400.  When the internal temperature reached 105, I carefully turned the almost flaking fillets and kept them on until they reached 145.  They were really great with a slightly sweet, slightly coffee spiced flavor - almost like sweet blackened fish but cooked on a grill!  I think this would work with any somewhat oily fish, e.g., sea bass and catfish (although I NEVER eat catfish  :laugh: ):
