4th of July BBQ Coffee Rub

4th of July BBQ Coffee Rub

July 1, 2020

July 4th is right around the corner and nothing goes together better than a BBQ to celebrate the holiday with family and friends. For the holiday, we wanted to get a little creative with how one could use Kamiak Coffee on July 4th besides in their morning coffee. After a lot of experimenting and a few failed attempts on the grill, we finally mastered how our roasts can go great on the BBQ. All you need is a bag of your favorite blend, your go-to BBQ gear, and you are set. 

This easy to make Kamiak Coffee Co BBQ Sauce will work great on beef, pork, chicken, or whatever you think would be enhanced with BBQ flavor.


1 24oz bottle of Ketchup

1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar

1/4 cup Brown Sugar

1 and 1/2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce

1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard*

2 teaspoons Onion Powder

2 teaspoons Paprika

1 teaspoon Liquid Smoke**

1 teaspoon of Black Pepper

1 cup of brewed Kamiak Coffee - Grand Teton Blend

1/4 cup of Chocolate Syrup

BBQ Steps:
