Cocoa Chipotle Spice Rub

Cocoa Chipotle Spice Rub brings together amazing pantry ingredients for a cocoa powder based rub that complements rich meat with a warm, savory, and perfectly bitter flavor profile. It doesn’t really taste like chocolate, but it adds a level of depth that you can’t really find with any other ingredient. You’ll keep coming for bites trying to work out everything you’re experiencing! I love making my own rubs, and this is one that I’ll come back to for beef over and over again. In this post, I used the cocoa spice rub on a gorgeous flank steak, but it would be awesome on any type of steak that is getting a hot and fast sear (think rib-eye, sirloin, skirt steak). It also fares well on low and slow meats if you feel like adding a flavor twist. I know people often keep it classic salt and pepper on things like beef ribs or brisket, but I truly think this cocoa rub could add so much depth and intensity to smoked meats.

As you are probably aware by now, my special skills lie in the world of meat and fire, not in the world of chocolate and sweet desserts. However, it is National Chocolate Day and my love for celebrating food holidays surpasses all of my reservations of grilling with chocolate and forces me out of my same old comfort zone. So I tasked myself with finding an awesome way to incorporate chocolate into my grilling and BBQ scene. I’m stoked to say, I think I managed to bring those two worlds together. Everybody who tried this cocoa spice rub was so intrigued and excited about the flavors, they couldn’t wait for the post to come out on my site.

So like I said, today is National Chocolate Day! Woooooo! I’ve teamed up with a crew of fellow bloggers who are working together to celebrate national food holidays all year long. It’s like a party each month with an awesome food theme (my favorite kind of party is a food party!) Go check out some of these awesome Chocolate Inspired recipes from the Celebrating Food Bloggers!

Grilled Vegetables and Israeli Couscous Salad

Well, it felt like the heat would never relent, but finally, the seasons are starting to change here in Durham. It's not quite feeling like fall yet though, but more how a pleasant summer should be—warm and comfortable, just generally good times to be outside. So I have not yet transitioned into my orange veggie, fall extravaganza mode, but instead am enjoying the last hurrays of the summer season, and this grilled vegetable and Israeli couscous salad is good note to go out on.

The Meat-Atlantic

I seriously think this Meatwave season has been cursed. In no other year have I had to cancel or postpone more Meatwaves, and when we did host cookouts, we often faced adverse weather conditions. This particular event, comprised of Mid-Atlnatic specialities, was supposed to happen back in March, but a continuing cold snap forced its delay. Then it was supposed to happen in September, but again we were foiled, this time by Hurricane Florence, so we pushed it to October. When it came to Meatwave week this time, we faced yet another hurricane, but luckily this one passed through quickly and we were looking at sunny and pleasant weather on a Sunday for once. Then that morning came, and what had been a favorable forecast turned into a cold and rainy morning, but luckily the rain stopped right in time for the meat to start flowing, and while the sun never did come out, we were finally able to put this long-awaited Meat-Atlantic in the books.
