Coffee can be used as a great way to start your day...or end it, at the grill. The dark and toasty undertones from the coffee in this dry rub pair well with dark meats. Any freshly ground coffee beans will work; choose dark roast for the biggest coffee flavor or a lighter roast if you’re looking for something a little more subtle. Use on: Chicken thighs, duck, beef, lamb

Make Ahead Tip: Store in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
1/2 cup  finely ground coffee
1/4 cup  coarsely ground pepper
3 tablespoons  kosher salt

Tip: Follow the marinating times, cooking times and temperatures below for juicy, perfect grilling results.
