Step 2: Creating the dry rub

Preheat your oven with the heat set to broil.  Place the ground coffee onto a sheet of aluminum foil and broil for 45 seconds, shaking every 10 seconds. You will see that the ground coffee will start smoking if it gets too hot.  Let the coffee cool before mixing in the rest of the dry rub.
mmmm....this looks awesome. it resembles Cowboy Rub by McCormick. i think i might try this...one question though. why do you broil the coffee first. the coffee is already roasted...
Supposedly it is to make the coffee have a more bold and complex flavor, but I just did some research on this and it seems to be a bit controversial on reheating coffee grinds. I'll have to try this without heating the coffee grinds next time to see the difference.
hmm...well, i will be patiently awaiting your answer as to the difference. Until then, i am going to try this when i get my next paycheck!
That whole plate just looks wonderful.
Thank you! :)
