That last layer of spice prior to turn in.

What is the best way to apply it.

Grind it small ??
Peppermill ??
sprinkle with shaker ??

Any Advice

I would definately grind it - fine. I don't think a peppermill will get it fine enough - I would use a spice grinder (coffee grinder). You want that final spice to blend into the sauce and not just sit on the meat - it would be too grainy. I also would apply it with your thumb and forefinger - you have much better control than with a shaker - especially if it is ground fine.

This is one way a lot of teams are able to "fix" something that comes off the cooker with little or no flavor...or even change/mask an overpowering flavor.

I do exactly as mentioned above.

Grind it in a coffee grinder and sprinkle with the thumb and forefinger...........unless I forget :icon_blush::doh:
