I have this recipe for a rub and it sounds so good, but nothing is said what to do with it? What do you all think it would go good on?

Chocolate Cumin Spice Rub

2 TB. unsweetened cocoa
2 TB. ground cumin
2 TB. freshly ground black pepper
1 TB. ground allspice
1 TB. sea salt.

Dry rub for ribs and chicken or anything else you want to BBQ.

I use all those ingredients plus lots more in more dry rub.

I like to add instant coffee and cocoa powder to my rub mixture.

I made coffee extract recently. I dried the "vodka-infused" crushed coffee beans, ground those in the spice grinder and plan on using those in my next dry rub.

Craig made something like this a while back using ground up cacao nibs plus ground chiles. I think we used it on either a pork or chicken dish. We've also used it in Craig's favorite huevos rancheros.
