Time to break out the barbeque! Here's a coffee rub that'll surely be the showstopper at your next BBQ!

This BBQ Coffee Rub Recipe is perfect for steaks. This Coffee Rub not only gives your steak great flavour, but a nice crust as well. If you have never used a Coffee Rub on steaks it is worth a try.
