Trader Joe's BBQ Rub and Seasoning with Coffee & Garlic

  1. I was a Trader Joe's today and came across this product for about $2.  I couldn't pass it up at that price, but haven't had the chance to try it out yet.  Has anyone tried this rub?  Ingredients look good!

    Hmmmm, no one's tried it?  I saw a bushel full of this rub today at TJs.  I was tempted but I've got a cabinet full of rubs I've bought or have been given, rubs that weren't all that great and tough to salvage with additions.  I passed.

  4. I finally tried some on bone in chicken breast with med application. I liked it and it got rave reviews from my wife and brother. I was worried with the coffee that it would be too strong for chicken but worked well.

    Yes, I'vea tried it and I love it. I use it as a solo rub and I also have used it along with other rubs. I do a smoke every weekend. I always use some of this. The problem is.....Trader Joe's here in Sarasota, Florida, doesn't have it any longer. They said it was a "supplier problem". If you can get more, get it now! Good luck.

    We didnt care for it. Used it, was just ok. Ended up giving it away.
