Thanks to you guys I just discovered Penzey's, it was true love at first sight.

Now the biggest problem is my budget. What are some essential and you all time favorite blends and must have spices from there for all around smoking/grilling? I have about $30 to spend.

There cumin is off the chart good. Also a there paprika smoked or sweet. For a beef rub I add there toasted minced onion. That has a very distinct smell and taste. If your going to make a rub your headed in the right direction by using all fresh spices and herbs. Some store bought stuff doesn't even have a smell so how can it have any taste. I have a Penzeys Spice store about 20 miles away and am a regular customer.

I am in love with Penzey's, buy all my spices from there, as you get into the larger size bags, they are much cheaper than grocery store bought stuff.

The 4/S Special Smoked Seasoned Salt is amazing
Smoked Paprika
Garlic Powder
Toasted Onion Powder
California Pepper Blend
Shallot Salt (!!!!!!!!!!!!)

I buy all the spices I use in my rub from Penzey's

Just discovered their Sunny Paris Seasoning, which is great dusted over steam veggies.

You really can't go wrong with anything from Penzey's

I buy my dried chilis from them for my yearly batch of chili powder. And their peppercorns are great.

I second that! I did that for my wife's birthday the other day, and she was very impressed! I've also made some great grill fries with it. Cut large steak fries out of large russett potatoes, stir with a little bit of veggie oil and a sprinkle of the BBQ3000, and pop on the grill. Use a grill basket or foil pan with holes in it to keep from falling through the grill if you want. There is a Southwest seasoning that is really good, cajun seasoning, fajita seasoning, pizza seasoning, boquet garni, and taco seasoning are all really good! Try this too, get some whole fennel seeds, toss a few onto a pizza before you cook it. It's really yummy!

I concur on the BBQ3000. I was impressed with the flavor on baby backs.

Do they have a good blend that you might use to rub a butt? Maybe the BBQ3000 mixed in with some Turbinado?

Any suggestions?

I use a lot of their Aleppo chili pepper. It's a turkish pepper similar to red chili pepper but much more mild and a bit like ancho.

I usually buy from Spice Barn. I like their prices better and it is fresh too.

Special Indian Telicherry Peppercorns
Cumin
Chipoltle Chili Powder
Ancho Chili Powder
Smoke Spanish Paprika
Mexican Oregano
Turkish Oregano
Vietnamese Cinnamon (out of this world!)
Cayenne Pepper
Bay Leaves
White Peppercorns
Yellow Mustgard Seeds
Brown Mustard Seeds

And anything else that you run across that is too tempting to turn down.There is a Penzeys store 25 min from my house and I go in there and shop for an hour 4 or 5 times a year. Take your pick of your most valued spices and they have it as good as it gets.

I`ll second that one.
Jarhead you ever tried there Mesquite Seasoning... secret ingredient in my rubs. Wink Get ya some & try. It adds that "BBQ flavor" to most any thing ya put it in. I like to make home made chips and sprinkle the Mesquite on them, similar to store bought tater chips.... but way better.

No I haven't Jeff. Putting an order together now and will include it. I am not too fond of Mesquite wood, so I don't know if I will like it.
