Preheat your oven to 375F, toss 2 dozen wings in 2 tablespoons EVOO, then season liberally with COFFEE BBQ. Bake for 45-50 mins until the skins are crispy.⁣

2. COFFEE BBQ Chicken Breast or Thighs

Season the chicken a few hours ahead of time to act as a dry-rub, then cook the meat any way you please.⁣ (We always recommend 2 tablespoons of my spice blends per pound of meat.)

6. COFFEE BBQ Salmon

Use my recipe for 6-Minute Salmon with COFFEE BBQ blend… it only takes 6 minutes and you're done!


I love a bavette or hangar cut for this – simply dry-rub the steak with COFFEE BBQ then grill for 3.5-4 minutes each side over high heat. Cut against the grain into thin slices.⁣


These ribs are GOOOOOOD. Don't slack on the seasoning, you really want to maximize that flavor. You can find the recipe here, though once you make it once, you won't need a recipe – it's that easy!
