Default Fresh ground coffee

I use a bit of this in my pork rubs.
About a tablespoons worth for 2 slabs of baby backs.
Was wondering if anyone else does and how much do you use?

I have read about the freshly ground coffee in the rubs but I have never done it. What does adding this do to the rub? How fine do you grind the coffee? Is it regular grind like a Folgers or do you really make it fine like an espresso?

I would imagine that if you put too much in there that the rub will end up being bitter.

I myself prefer the sweeter style rubs and am not sure I would like it.

And please don't tell me that it tastes like coffee (haha!)

A small amount of coffee ads an earthiness to the rub. The coffee will not soften during the cook, so I use an extremely fine grind (as fine as my espresso grinder will go).

I also use a fine grind. I grind my own coffee, 8 O'Clock Columbian beans, and as said I find it does add an earthy flavor. I will say it just adds another layer of awesomness to the flavor.
Steve you don't add alot, like I said about 1/2 tablespoon per rack of ribs. If I'm doing a butt 8-10lb range I add about 1 1/2 tablespoons to the rub

I occasionally use Oakridge BBQ Black Ops rub which has ground coffee in it. I definitely adds a level of earthiness to the taste.
