Sugarfire Smoke House Rub

Last November I shared with you the recipe for a truly delicious coffee barbecue sauce from one of my favorite local barbecue joints, Sugarfire Smoke House. The recipe, that you can find here, contained an ingredient that, unless you live locally, you did not have, namely their special rub (available for sale in their restaurants). I had made the suggestion that, in lieu of the authentic version, you use the seasoning in Emeril's coffee barbecue sauce. Well, I have great news! Thanks to a recent issue of a wonderful, local foodie magazine called Feast, the recipe for this special rub is now available, and you can be 100% authentic and make a sauce that is 100% delicious. Emeril, step aside, this rub beats yours hand down! No wonder this sauce is so good, with 15 ingredients in the rub, it just can't help but have lots of flavor. Obviously this recipe makes a huge amount, so I suggest cutting it way back. When I made it, I used just 1/4 cup of paprika, kosher salt, garlic powder, etc. It still makes a lot, but I will be using this stuff on everything.

I am printing out a copy for my husband to use at the cabin. We always make up a rub but we fly by the seat of our pants and just throw stuff in...a lot of what you have listed here.
It will be nice to have an actual recipe so we can be consistant. We would go through that in no time as he feeds a whole lotta people at the cabin.
Hmmm think I'll have to dig out the photos from the last feast he made there.
