2 Tablespoons Coarsely Ground Black Pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons Sea or Kosher Salt

Combine the dry rub ingredients (Finely Ground Coffee through Salt) and rub over the Pork. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.

Combine 1/4 cup Barbecue Sauce and 1 Tablespoon Cider Vinegar. (Reserve 2 Tablespoons of this mixture and set aside to brush over the pork when it is ready for service.)

Place Pork on grill rack coated with cooking spray over high heat. Grill 3 minutes, turning Pork on all sides. Place Pork over medium heat 15 minutes, turning Pork occasionally. Baste with 3 Tablespoons of the barbecue sauce mixture. Grill 5 minutes, or until thermometer registers 160 degrees F. (Slightly pink), turning occasionally.
