As the World Spice Cookbook Club gears up for grilling season, we’re taking a peek inside the June 2016 selection for our monthly Meet & Eat. Marinades, Rubs, Brines, Cures & Glazes is an impressive compendium of of more than 400 flavor combinations by Jim Tarantino. We always appreciate a unique flavor combination, and this totally original Ancho Espresso Dry Rub piqued our interest, and it even has several variations to try!

If you don’t want to grind your Ancho Chiles into a powder, you can try substituting Ancho Chili Powder in place of the chile, garlic, and onion.

Makes about 1½ cups

Ancho-Espresso Dry Rub

Chicken breasts or kabobs, beef brisket, ground beef patties, pork tenderloin, pork chops, baby back ribs, or spareribs: 4 to 6 hours

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Combine the sugar, chile powder, coffee, garlic powder, onion powder, cinnamon, salt, and pepper in a spice mill or a blender and grind to a coarse powder. Stored in a clean, airtight container, this will keep in the freezer for 3 to 4 months.

Notes

ANCHO-COCOA DRY RUB: Replace the espresso with cocoa powder.

LEMON-ESPRESSO RUB: Replace the ancho chile powder with 2 tablespoons grated lemon zest, and replace the cinnamon with crushed red pepper flakes.

TIP: While testing the ancho and cocoa versions of these recipes, I gave the leftover rubs to a friend, who then mixed the two of them together for a Mocha-Ancho Rub.
