Pepper grinder question.

Uncle Bubba's post inspired me to post this one.

What does everyone do for pepper grinders?

I've been using a brass handled grinder for years now. But I just started queing this June and I've never needed the quantities of fresh ground pepper I need to produce these days.

It takes me 400 cranks to get a tablespoon of fresh ground. There's got to be a better way ..... Or does everyone just use preground pepper in their rubs?

A clear acrylic grinder made by Cole and Mason from England. Has SS action. They're (salt and pepper) pretty cracked up but still holding together. Good timing on this thread!!

I bought a nice grip handle pepper mill from Le Gourmet Chef in Cleveland. It works nice for both small and large quantities!

I use a brass Turkish coffee grinder. Got it from the "Frugal Gourmet" that used to be on PBS. It is great for fine to medium grind, but for course I have a wooden one I stole from a local restraunt!

Thsoe Turkish coffee grinders will grind a lot of pepper quick. At least the ones on the market back when Larry bought his. Now I don't know. Probably just a glorified pepper mill.

A burr coffee mill should work well for pepper and has variable courseness settings.

How right you are Chris! It's even got a canister attached to it to collect the grounds. The best $50 I have ever spent!

well I'm lucky on this one. Me neighbor sells spices to restaurants here. He gets me great stuff cheap. Nothing beats freshly ground pepper, but in large quantities, this stuff is pretty good.

Also got a big bottle of a black pepper/granulated garlic blend that
ROCKS! Great on fried turkey, steaks, butts, ribs...everything.

You got a point there about actually grinding the pepper while cooking. I usually do a bunch ahead though. WM

If you really want to make it interesting...roast your peppercorns before you grind them. Just watch out though...those little suckers start popping all over the place like popcorn and they are HOT. The difference in the flavor is incredible. Also makes the house smell really good.
