Pepper & Pepper Grinders

I buy my pepper here, and favor the Talamancha, which is the best pepper I've ever had:

Welcome to Pepper Passion

I use this pepper grinder in the kitchen, which is the most efficient and versatile I've ever tried:

I got my pepper grinder from a garage sale for about $0.50. Works quite well, like a good farm mule. I get my pepper corns wherever there is a good sale. Of course at my age I don't have the discriminating sense of smell or taste to tell one from another. :)

Coffee grinders are great for milling peppercorns, too. You can make the pepper as coarse or fine as you want.

Jeff Smith (Frugal Gourmet) used a Turkish hand cranked
coffee grinder for his pepper - it was a wooden box with a
drawer at the bottom, the pepper went into a hopper on the top
and fell down, ground, into the drawer.

Yes, I have seen those, but never for sale or in a garage sale. I do it the modern way, with electricity.

Ok, don't think I'm cheap , but I found black peppercorns with the grinder included in the same dispenser at Dollar Tree. That is what I'm using currently. It's nothing fancy, but it's still freshly ground black pepper. I also picked up one that grinds sea salt.

Hey, those things aren't half bad. Have you figured out how to re-use them? Then you would be getting great value. I even found one with 5 different types of peppercorns. Slick.
