In particular, I go through a lot of Florida seasoned pepper, Adobo, and their chili powder.

As well as garlic, onion, thyme, peppercorns, mexican oregano and bay leaves.

I use a lot of onion powder when I do ribs, I'll throw that in the cart, too. And try their garlic, but I see it is granules and not powder...

so where do y'all keep your spices? I see a lot of them come in a bag. Do you need to pinch them out each time or put them in an old shaker?

You have a couple of choices. Buy a bottle of a spice and if you like it, buy a larger quantity in a bag and refill the bottle. OR Buy empty bottles and fill them from the bags.

Bottle? That must be the "jar" choice I see. About twice the $ amount and half the amount of spice. I take it the jar has the usual shaker top?
I suppose I could call them, too...

Yeah, but aside from salt, I'm a shaker, not a pincher

They sell garlic powder. Believe me. I always have a bag of it on hand.
Spices at Penzeys Spices Garlic

I keep some in the bag, but mostly I transfer to bottles .

Thanks jennyema. The word granulated threw me off. When I see granulated I think of something similar to sugar.

Well, looks like I'll need to downsize my order to get the jars with the shaker lids. Thanks UB.
