    Bay Leaf Conversion: Whole to Powdered

    One version of the S&G rub recipe calls for 10 bay leaves, another calls for 1 Tb dried crushed. I have powdered. Can someone please help me with the conversion? Thanks

    Sounds like a job for Google.

    FWIW, here's one conversion I found there:

    One fresh bay leaf = two dried bay leaves.
    One dried bay leaf = ¼ tsp ground bay leaves.
    One fresh bay leaf = ½ tsp ground bay leaves.

      How do you remove ground Bay Leaves at the end of the cook?

        I don't care who you are, that's funny.

        If you are serious, the only reason to remove bay leaves is because they can become brittle and a choking hazard. The Bay, Indian, and California Laurel plants sold whole or powdered is not toxic. The similar English/Cherry/ Mountain laurel are toxic but those plants aren’t sold as a food ingredient in Western countries. So if you decide you have a laurel bush growing outside your house and think “I’ll use that instead of going to the store,” just don’t. Buy the little jars.

        Of course, I am serious, PBR serious.
        That is good to know.

      Thanks, Kathryn, and right you are! I hadn't been able to find the answer when I posted my question. Thanks for your rapid reply--I'll be making the rub soon. And bbqluv, if you're serious with your question, I assume with a good spice grinder (I use the Cuisinart SG-10) you can grind them so fine you avoid the issue. Buying powdered accomplishes the same thing!
