Midyett BBQ Rub

This rub made great spareribs, with a crunchy crust and really good flavor. I usually let seasonings sit on the meat for awhile, but I only dusted them to sit while the fire got up to temp. Five hours in the Weber Kettle at 240° untended (using my Slow n Sear). Perfect.

2 parts good sea salt
1 part black pepper
1/4-1/2 part sumac
1/3-1/2 part ground coffee
1/4-1/2 part garlic powder
1/4-1/2 part cocoa powder

[Note: I used the larger quantities of each ingredient.] 

Special equipment: Spice grinder.

Ingredient info: Sumac is widely available at Middle Eastern grocery stores and spice specialty stores. For the pepper, Midyett tries to use freshly ground Tellicherry; for the coffee, he recommends a darker roast.


Combine ingredients and grind as fine as possible. “Try not to inhale the mixture when you open the grinder, or you will pay a price,” Midyett warns. Coat the meat entirely with the resulting blend before cooking.

    Thanks. Corrected (that was an autocorrect that I missed – I certainly know what it’s called).
