    I just use the glass mason jars for my rubs. I found a shaker that has larger than normal holes to apply the rubs.

      I buy a lot of my stuff/accessories from Amazon which helps to support AR. They have some really neat shaker jars HERE

        You can get empty spice jars with shaker tops at most kitchenware stores (like bed bath and beyond) or search out a local restaurant supply store to save a lot over retail. I just save my empty spice containers and reuse them.

          I use these kind of disposable containers for rub and mason jars for sauce. I still apply the rub with a table spoon but I'm a bit OCD on the amount I use. Not that thats a bad thing

          I find that empty parmesan cheese containers work well for the rubs. They already have the oversize holes and are generally big enough for my needs. As for sauce I bought some cheap ketchup and mustard squeeze bottles from the dollar store.

            I too use a parmesan cheese container, and I have 2 large spice containers that have the larger sifter holes. Work excellent for me.

              My wife works for the local school system so I get all sorts of spice containers for my rubs, chili powders, and other stuff. For my sauces (especially my Controlled Burn hot sauce) I use this company.

              I use the Avery laser labels (ink won't run like the inkjet ones) 9 to a page. Got them on Amazon for around $12 for 90, will last a long time

                You print them at home? Regular iink adheres better to these labels, is that what you mean?

                No, I don't have a laser printer. Emailed the Avery template for my labels to my local U.P.S. store and they printed the labels at a nominal cost on the labels I gave them. The ink on the labels I printed at home with my inkjet printer ran once the bottle went into the fridge.

                I save spice containers from HEB (my local grocer) and re-purpose them as rub shakers. There is a local spice vendors with big containers here in Texas and these are the best when using to rub up a big load of meat. I have 4 or 5 ready to go when needed

                    When I'm in my local spice shop, I just add a few containers to the spices I'm buying. They have several sizes and the prices aren't horrible.

                    You can probably get them from online spice stores as well. I got a bunch through Spice Barn at one point last year.

                      Are you happy with the products you get from "Spice Barn". If you get spices are you pleased with the freshness and quality?

                    I just recycle the large spice containers, they all have a shaker top, though they differ depending on the spice.
