    Badia spices

    I first saw these spices in the Hispanic section section at a local grocery, but they have moved to the spice section, and the variety has greatly increased. Most are half the price of the brands I am familiar with, and some are even less.

    I have tried several and can't tell the difference from the pricier brands. Is anyone familiar with them?

    We use them all the time and can’t see any difference except the lower price. And we usually find them in larger sizes.

        Not that brand but we've started buying our spices from the International section of the grocery store too.
        Donw nailed it, at least half the price and double the spice in most cases with no appreciable loss in quality.

          That’s my hometown brand! Made in Doral (a city in Miami-dade county) only a few miles from my house. Needless to say, that brand is EVERYWHERE here, and accounts for most of the clutter in my spice cabinet. I like that they sell large containers of garlic and onion powder, and ground cumin. Not those little farty containers but by the pound. On an unrelated note, guess which spices feature prominently in Cuban food....

          At first I was thinking "how did he just now find Badia spices??" They have been in every grocery store, with nearly their own isle, my whole life. After seeing SmokeyGator 's post, it makes more sense now. Must be a Florida/regional thing. For the price, I can't tell any difference in quality, so I definitely recommend!

            If you're looking for more obscure spices, try an ethnic grocery like Seabra. They have a huge selection of Badia spices. You can find out what Badia offers (and order) on their web site.

            Outside of ordering online, when I need an truly esoteric spice, I've had the best luck at Fresh Market. While they are quite pricey, they have some things you can't find anywhere else.

            Agreed, Murdy . And the nice thing about the Fresh Market spices is that they're sold in small enough amounts that they don't languish in your spice tray for years. But Badia is also nice for the ingredients that I use a lot of for rubs.

          I first learned about Badia seasonings when visiting Belize. We went fishing just outside the reef one day and cooked our fish later that night using seasonings suggested by the local guys. They used Badia's "Complete Seasoning" blend and also sprinkled the fish with dried coconut milk powder. I followed the "when in Rome..." philosophy and it turned out pretty good.

          Of course, it's hard to not like super-fresh fish eaten al fresco with bare toes in warm coral sand, good friends and family to talk to, and a perfect moon overhead.

            Their Complete is good stuff. We keep it and a couple their Adobo's in our kitchen. They have a whole bunch of blends, but I don't see them in stores around where I live.

            Imagine my surprise when I also found Badia spices in my local grocery store -- no traveling to Belize to find them. But you're right, @Bkuna -- the local stores carry only a few of the blends. The "Complete" blend is handy.

            We've been to Belize several times. Friends from Minnesota have retired there and become permanent residents. We have always enjoyed our visits, especially since our friends introduce us to the local life, rather than having to visit the place as utter tourists.

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

        the good one grill

        The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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.

The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
