    Rub and Sauce containers

    I would like to buy some rub shakers, and sauce containers. what are you guys using for this? and where are you purchasing?

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


      hadn't thought about mason jars. Will check that out. i wonder if i can find shaker lids for mason jars.

        yeah thats the rumor on the internet anyways

      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

            thats what i have been doing. but i really want a shaker. so i can make a bunch at once.

          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.

              The link to the 5 oz. bottles...



                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

                  Awesome. i will have to look through everyone's links. Thanks for sharing.


                    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.


                      wow thanks for the info about spice barn. they have exactly what i need and cheap.

                      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
