Just learned that some put corn starch in their rub for anti-caking....I haven't tried it yet but plan to. Maybe someone else has tried this and can let us know how it works.

I use my coffee grinder a lot when I have big grained seasonings like Montreal Seasoning and want to grind it into smaller pieces. I do this a lot for seasoning steaks

Another tip: Grind some kosher salt and some seasoning into a fine powder to make popcorn salt. A lot better and far cheaper than buying at the store.

When mine get caked up I think that is a sign from Heaven that is time to chunk em and go step and fetch something a little mo fresher. Ice boxes and freezer is a bad plan. The stuff always eventually gets wet. Filing cabinet in the bedroom works purty good. Thats where Big Dave keeps his. Thats good enough for me..but I dont want my bedroom to smell like a Hindu fast food joint so I keeps them in the camper. Everybody needs a camper. Only problemo is it aint air conditioned. Thats why it would be mo betta to keep in the house.

Buy your rub from someone who uses an anti-caking agent. I know a guy if you need his info. .

I keep mine in a sealed mason jar, the kind with a seal in the lid. Recycle an old mayonnaise jar and use Sapo's trick.

I use my el cheapo coffee grinder almost every day for grinding spices. I bought it in the 1970. It even survived a period when it was used to muddle squirrel hair when I was tying flies for trout fishing.

This will let you buy whole spices and grind your own fresh.

In addition to making powdered salt, as suggested, I powder Turbanado sugar for my blackening rub.

I keep my rubs in a sealed mason jar, and they will screw on to my old "bee hive" Oster blender. Got it for 50 cents. (yard sale) The food saver mason jar lid attachment helps keep them fresh too.

Makes quick work of grinding up pepper corns for a big recipe of chicken sauce too.

I had about 3 cups of rub left over and notice it starting to cake. I put about 2 tbl of corn starch in and I'll see what happens.
