I cannot say enough good things about this recipe. I've been making this rub in a large batch (multiply the recipe times 6 to fit in a large mason jar) for the last two years and it is a family favorite. It's amazing as described, on wings and drumsticks (baked or grilled). My partner and I also put it directly on chicken breast, or breast tenders, when we're looking for an easy dinner. The flavors are PERFECT, and win over any dinner guest. I highly recommend you give this a try... and then fill up that mason jar.

What would you substitute for freeze-dried coffee? I have coffee beans...

MY but these were delicious! I made two small changes to the recipe: I used brown sugar rather than white, and when mixing the butter and spices with the chicken, I had a WhatTheHell moment and splashed in the last 1/4 cup or so of a bottle of bourbon that was on the counter. I haven't had them sans bourbon, but with bourbon? MORE PLEASE

This rub looks to-die-for. I particularly love rubs with coffee in them, but adding cocoa? Genius.
