The Magic Behind Coffee Brisket Rub Recipe

Combining this with sweet flavors from brown sugar and spicy flavor from chili powder, you’re in for a treat!
Why Coffee In Your Beef Rub?
Coffee, being a complex flavor, brings out the rich smokiness of the brisket. It adds depth of flavor that takes your good brisket to an amazing brisket. And let’s not forget the antioxidant benefits of coffee, packed with vitamin C and other goodies, you’re doing your body a favor!
Choosing the Right Cut for Your Coffee Rubbed Brisket
The best cuts of beef to use for a coffee rub brisket are the prime rib, pork tenderloin, and of course, the brisket. The exterior of the brisket with its long cooking time allows the coffee rub to penetrate, creating a rich, delicious crust.
How to Store Your Coffee Rub
Storing your homemade coffee rub is easy peasy. Simply put it in an airtight container and it’ll stay good for a long time. So the next time you’re in the mood for some coffee-rubbed brisket, you have your dry rub ready!
