    Rub Shaker

    I'm currently using salvaged Parmesan cheese shakers to apply rub. The holes are WAY to big. Short of applying duct tape to several of the holes, I'm at a loss. I like the size of these shakers, but again, the holes. Does anybody use anything else? Suggestions?

      I have the Winco shaker that came with 3 lids with different size holes. Found other uses for them also. If you bake bread, it is great for dusting the bread and the bannetons, so easy to
      get an even coverage with just about anything. And they are inexpensive.

    I'm in the same situation. Most rub recipes tend to make too much for the smaller "spice jar" style shakers (although, of course the holes on those are too small for many rubs) so I end up using the Parmesan shakers and the holes are way too big.

    What I've been thinking of trying is the other type of Parmesan shaker --- those glass ones that used to grace the tables of dine-in pizza places in the 80s. The holes were big enough for red pepper flakes, which I think is the ideal size.

      I just recycle commercial dry rub bottles for my homemade rubs
      If they worked once they should be fine twice.

        I don't know, smokin fool I think those holes get all 'used up' after a few refills. They get tired, worn down, spent. Sad.

      I use costco shakers after I use up all the crazy amounts of spices in ‘em :-)

        Holes may be too small for some, but Oakridge sells a shaker which is perfect for their rubs: https://www.oakridgebbq.com/product/spice-rub-shaker/

        ​​​​​I also like this one which works for coarser rubs, I use this with my home made rubs (think originally got recommendation from Harry Soo): https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B015HJRG...ing=UTF8&psc=1

          The stainless is the one to go to.
          Only bad part my recycle plan is who knows what is growing on the label after more than a few uses

          Large holes are a problem. Small holes are not. Some spices do well with small holes, others stop them up. Determine what spice or rub will be used in what shaker. If you cannot find larger holes when needed, simply use a drill bit to open the hole just a tiny bit larger then the existing hole. Start by drilling out say around 20% to 25% of them slightly larger. Then drill more until you get what you want. Easily done with a power drill and bit or even a Dremel tool with a small bit.

        These are what I use... I have 5 or 6 of them...I store the rubs I make in mason jars and pour into the shaker as needed...

                Most all spice shakers we buy get saved for repurposing. The smaller ones, I’ll let those go but the mid to large sized, those I keep. Especially the shakers I get from Costco with various stuff in them. Those are great!

                  I repurpose the large garlic powder shakers from Costco, the holes seem a bit bigger.

                I still prefer my good old fingers. Old habits die hard in this chef..
