Where do i find small batch handcrafted spicerubs to send as a gift.

I have a friend that loves to bbq and wanted to give him a selection of spice rubs that he can use for the summer. He loves spicy food and is a grill master.
Thanks in advance

I have several flavors of hand-made Urban Sproule sea salts, and they are a fantastic garnish/rub. Celery and Thai Chili are my favorites, but I'll be damned if Peach Habanero doesn't sound utterly delectable as a steak rub.

I am a huge fan of Gneiss Spice.

I've found some good packaged spice rubs at World Market/Cost Plus.

Volcano Spice Company is based in Hawaii. I have their 'original' flavor: Sweet paprika with natural herbs and spice create a Lively Cajun Style seasoning rub for chicken, steak, fish or pork pan seared, BBQ'd, baked or broiled. Great for seafood, potatoes, eggs & chili.....or as a rub on roast. chicken, or turkey. "A favorite in Hawaii since 1991" for Seared Ahi (Tuna) Sashimi. They have extra spicy versions too.

I've given and received Purpose Design sets several times. The flavors are out of this world. They're in Canada so if you order it might take a bit longer depending on where you live.

Really love Kauai Spice Co. out of Kauai. Definition of small batch and a taste profile you don't find everywhere.

I love, love, love the Moroccan Twist Sauce Goddess spice rub.
Delicious, spicy, wonderful.

Their website seems to have a four-variety spice rub gift set.

Last year I took a chance on one of their round little tins on display at the meat department counter, and never regretted it. It lasted for a long time, but for heavy-duty grillers may not last as long.

Oaktown Spice Shop has some very nice blends. Their BBQ Master's Gift Box might be suitable.
