rub storage?
 
I was wondering what you guys store your rubs in. I've been looking for a decent large volume shaker with an airtight lid, but no luck. I'd like to make large batches in advance so they're ready when I need them. Any ideas?

We put our rubs in freezer bags. Remove all of the air, place in a storage container and place in the freezer. Keeps rubs fresh. We keep all of our hebs in the freezer.

I don't like the shakers myself. Store rub in a ziplock, pour the amount I'm gonna use in a bowl and sprinkle on by hand. Any left in the bowl gets tossed. No contamination. That's just my preference.

Roger that. Most everything gets frozen when not being used.

another good reason to get a vacuum sealer. either use the canisters and put your rubs in their or vac seal in small bags.

Here's a place that you can get any size container.

I vac seal in a canister.

Vac-sealed, canister and bags, depending on how much and how many I have at the moment.

I put my rubs back in to large shaker bottles that spices come in (like Tones for instance). I always shake out of the bottle, but I shake from the 'spoon opening'.

As a side note, this is one area I could really improve. I tend to often use pretty cheap spices, from the super market or Costco. Might be nice to use fresher or more high quality stuff.

On a side - side note, it just ocurred to me, I use a lot of Paprika! I need to invest in Paprika company stock, as well as paper towel company stock and Aluminum Foil company stock.

I started washing glass salsa bottles when empty and keeping them around for storage, too.

I am with Lo-and-slow and Kevin on this one. I use ziplocks, store in the freezer, and as Kevin says, dump what I think I will use into a bowl, sprinkle on by hand, and disgard anything left in bowl. That way I don't have to worry about cross contamination.

I just remembered that Alton Brown uses a parma-cheese shaker like a pizza place uses. To keep it fresher he puts a piece of wax paper under the lid and screws it down, then removes it when needed.
