I just picked up the Trudeau Graviti from Sur La Table myself. Haven't used it much, but it's been good to me so far...

Thats after I went through several cheaper ones. This one has a crank like an old mechanical pencil sharpener. I can adjust the grind size by adjusting the screw on the bottom of the mill.
Ditto on that... I bought mine back when he was still on the air (late 80's early 90's) and it works like a champ!!!

Are you sure this is the right thread for you guys?

Kitchenaid Coffee grinder. We have several of them. One for coffee, one for mixing, and one for mixing individual. They all have the same blade and design but I like to keep them separate. And they were on sale at woot.com

Thanks guys.

I'm leaning towards the Magnum for general cooking and maybe
getting a cheap burr grinder for rubs.

Just a thought.

Does anyone think that it is really necessary to use freshly ground pepper
in a rub that will not be completely used and have to be stored?

Short answer? No.

When I am making up bulk batches of rubs, etc. I almost always use purchased pre-ground. As long as it comes from a freshly opened container it works fine. I will grind pepper for small batches that are to be used at once, and/or for something special, like a big rib roast, or holiday meal.

I jumped ahead to post and didn't read all of the responses. I have both of the grinders you mention in your original post plus the Unicorn Pepper Gun. I highly recommend any of the Unicorn products, especially the Magnum plus for larger amounts of freshly ground pepper.

I'm going to go back and read all of the responses now.

Okay, read all of the posts now. Good thread. Yeah, Jeff Smith WAS on TV, right up until he molested a boy scout - allegedly, of course!

Necessary? Can't really answer that.... I do grind all of the stuff fresh each time I make up some rub... I usually do several pounds of rub at a time for convenience and then package them in quart mason jars and then vac pack the lids on. Then they are stored in a cool dark cabinet until used. I think it makes a big difference. Why bother with all the other fresh spices I buy to make my rubs and then cheap out on the pepper?
