Whole chickens!

1 with a coffee/brown sugar rub, and the other with a standard all purpose rub. Used some apple chips to smoke with.  This is an hour and 15 minutes in

It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch

I have decided the coffee rub was a little too strong for the chicken...too much coffee, not enough sweetness.

It was:

4 tbsp of Cafe Bustelo espresso coffee
3 tbsp of brown sugar
2 tsp of coarse salt
2 tsp of black pepper
2 tsp of dried cilantro

It made a pretty large batch, so I may try it on steak...I think it might go better on red meat.

Back the sugar up just a bit & that would work grate for brisket, beef ribs or the like......

Yeah, and I was thinking of adding some chili powder as well to spice it up a bit!  :)

namtrag - for what is worth - below is a sweet coffee based rub I use quite often.  It goes well with fish and chicken.

 2 cups brown sugar
1/8 cup coarse ground dark roast coffee
1/8 cup Old Bay (this will provide heat so adjust accordingly)
1/8 cup ground turmeric
1/8 cup curry powder
1/8 cup ground cumin
1/8 cup ground black pepper
tsp kosher salt
tsp garlic powder

That sounds a lot better than mine.  I got it from the guys on you tube, can't remember their name, and it was mostly coffee, 5 T of coffee, and 2 T of brown sugar for example
