Never been able to find worcestershire powder locally :shock: And until Gator annouced the rebirth of Texas Gun Powder, I'd never heard of Jalapeno powder :oops:

Most of the spices come from the Indian or Asian market. I find that they are fresher and cheaper than what you can get a Kings/Safeway/Whole Foods or Vitamin Cottage.

Yeah Dats I have what you have and a couple more.
Agree on the ethnic markets Mexican and Asian typically fresher and cheaper. I see Wally has Watkins spices now, haven't tried them recently but they used to be really good.

Yep, Pendery's is a big source for me. Worst powder is good - used on a brisket a couple times. Of course, Tone's, and whatever I find at the Mex. grocery.

Wally around here just started getting Watkins about 6 months ago. I've been using a little and there better than most I can find around here. Although there's not much to compare to. Got a little bulk food pantry a little ways up the road. Not to bad, but doesn't have a great selection. Order most from spice houses online.

I don't have near that much, but if you ave an Albertons near you and it is closing, they have 50% off spices.

I buy the tiny dried shrimp at the oriental market, and into the blender they go. Instant shrimp powder - good in Cajun food, seafood, and believe it or not, on some eggs!
