Best Spice Grinder

Discussion in 'Sauces, Rubs & Marinades' started by 357mag, Mar 29, 2011.

  1. I am really getting into this smoker cooking thing and have been making my own rub since my second brisket cook. Now I would like to go one step further and grind my own whole spices for my rubs. I have done a search on "grinders" in this forum and have found very little information on spice grinders.

    Can anyone tell what they use for a spice grinder?

    I use a cheap electric coffee grinder. 

    Think it was $7

    I also use a coffee grinder. Once you start using it for spices make sure you dedicate it to only spices. It will not be good for coffee after that.

  6. I too use a cheap coffee grinder. I think I paid $7-10 for it about 10 years ago.

    I accidentally let my brother use my spice coffee grinder. He wasn't too happy about the mixup.

    Coffee grinder.  Wipe it with a damp cloth and run a few grains of rice to clean it.  Who grinds coffee since the 70's anyway?  LOL

    Good luck and good smoking!
