Where to buy bulk Spices?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

I am not sure if this is correct section of the forums for this, but does anyone have a good internet source for buying Spices in bulk for rubs and such? To clarify I am not looking for pre-made rubs. I am looking for the ingredients to make rubs. I am new to smoking so I am thinking I need to stock up on the essentials since I will probably be trashing a lot.

Costo, Sams, Smart N Final all have the restaurant size spices. icon14.gif

If you have a way to get in - Restaurant Depot is also a good source. Lots of folks buy from Penzys but it is expensive

No problem,even the grocery stores have them but more money. I even pick some stuff up the dollar store, usually made in usa.gificon14.gif

I buy a lot from Butcher and Packer and they're pretty reasonable.  There is a shipping charge but i'm usually ordering more than spices too, lol!

I buy them from Penzey's.  We have a brick and mortar store about 45 minutes from us, but their online ordering works well, too.

I get mine at Savory Spice Shop.  They are very fresh, ground weekly.  Freshly ground is very important for retaining flavor.  The prices are a little high, but to me it is worth it because the quality is like none I have ever found before.  You will not believe the difference in your spice rubs when you use these spices.

Ditto. They seem to be better quality than what I can get from Sam's, local restaurant supply stores, and grocery stores.

We have a store locally, which is real handy.

There's a local Amish market that sells whole spices in bulk at very reasonable prices. Not sure where you're located (hint hint) but you may try something like a farmer's market in your area. Also, if you're gonna make your own rubs and such, definitely go with whole spices and grind them yourself. The flavor difference is off the charts.

Luckily I live in restaurant capital and have a few connections for really great stuff.

I buy whole spice from Butcher Packer and from SpiceEct.  online and grind myself.  Buying by the pound I grind what I need with a cheap coffee grinder and keep the rest whole and in the freezer.
