Topic: BBQing with Coffee Beans? (6 msgs / 154 lines)
1) From: Demian Ebert
Afternoon-
I just put a pork loin roast on the bbq to smoke for a couple of hours. We
got a new BBQ a couple of weeks ago and it's a real joy to use. As I was
putting together the rub, I was wondering if people use coffee in their rubs
or their smokers/bbqs. I seem to recal MiKe talking about it in the past but
no specifics come to mind. I suppose the flavor would be different depending
on the bean,  but would it be noticeable in the finished product? Curious if
anyone's tried it.
Thanks in advance

I'm not sure if you would notice "that" much difference what type of bean
used, really.
I posted this to the list recently. It works well.

4 tablespoons whole coffee beans

2 tablespoon white peppercorns

Try this:
For a beer can chicken, do something with all the beer in a 12 oz can,
instead of just half of it. Replace with half a can of strongly brewed
coffee. Otherwise proceed as usual. (If you never beer caned a chicken you
can Google it, read a few of the 576,000 articles, and just go from there).
Basic rub:
1/4 cup each or coarse salt, freshly ground black pepper, fresh paprika,
brown sugar.
Optionally add a few teaspoons, more or less, of your choice of other
spices: garlic, mustard, cayenne...

Hello,
A great book to own is "Webber's Real Grilling" by Jamie Purviance.  I ha=
ve tried just about all his recipes and they are fantastic to say the least=
!  He has a great coffee recipe for pork and there is one for the beer ca=
n chicken, plus many more.  The coffee rub works well with steaks and chi=
cken also.  I learned too from a chef friend of mine to use ground coff=
ee as an added spice for steamed vegetables, etc.  I even like it on to=
asted garlic bread.  As my chef friend said just experiment!
