    I was fooling around the other day and took a couple pics of my fancy spice cabinet to share with ya'll. It is an old ammo box that rockets came in originally. [​IMG]

    oh man, that is awsome!!!! [​IMG]
  4. Those McCormack spices are expensive compared to buying larger containers from say Costco or and maybe even BJ's or Sam's Club (not a member of these). I passed on getting some at Costco and stopped at a local supermarket closer to home, only to find the cost was very similar but the quantity I got was about 1/8th. Only problem is I'll need a HUGE spice cabinet!

    Agreed, I purchase bulk spices as well, they just don't fit in this particular cabinet. I knew I needed bulk spices the first time I made a quadruple batch of TulsaJeff's rib rub. I had 4 (I think) little grocery store bottles of paprika in it by the time I was done measuring. That's a little over $10 just in paprika for those keeping score at home. [​IMG]

    I have a Costco membership and in fact have a trip planned there Monday. I still end up with lots of smaller ones. Things I don't use much of or run out of in between trips to the big town.

    The Grill Mates seasonings were recently purchased on a 10 for $10 deal @ our local grocery store. I am big on the Roasted Garlic & Herb Grill Mates stuff on country style pork ribs on the grill. MmmmMmmm. [​IMG]

    We saw a stack of these boxes for sale at the last Gun Show me and Mrs. D went to. She asked me "What on earth would somebody use an old rocket crate for". I said they would make a nice storage unit-just mount it on a wall. Well she gave me "that look" again and said "Yeah, right!"

    Now I'll have to show her Meowey's nifty spice rack just to prove to her that sometimes, I DO KNOW what I'm talkin' about!! [​IMG]

    I like the spice arrangement Chad. Putting the cayenne, crushed red pepper and cajun seasonings on the bottom probably makes the box think it still has rockets in it.[​IMG][​IMG]
  10. Rocket ammo like that can be truly explosive with the right mixture of spices.

    my kitchen has a built-in spice rack. there is a smallish door in the wall, open it and there is shelves. i put my spices in it, because it is dark in there with the door closed.

    That would be a cool idea in the trailer when going to a competition... and I can just imagine the looks I would get.

    I love it....

    I found that I too have found buying the small bottles got expensive, and have found a supplier on line that has some very good prices, and I don't have to drive 20 miles to save a few bucks.... And they ship super fast too. I got my order like in 3 days from ordering.....

  17. Cool rack…where’s your juniper berries?[​IMG]

    I'm more interested in the rack on the back wall of the next room. Looks like my kinda house :)

    I use surplus ammo boxes of all kinds for storage. They're cheap and with a little common sense, can be used for just about anything. Good work there UM!

    Good eye Stars, I didn't even notice they made the picture. [​IMG] Thats just a rack of .22's that didn't make the cut to get to live in the overflowing safe. They are 2 Remington 514 Single Shots, a Winchester 191 Deluxe, and a Marlin bolt I horse traded a coon hunting buddy for that has a fashioned floor plate therefore making it a Single shot bolt. He lost the magazine. [​IMG]
