    +1 to all of the above. Also, common spices for meat in India are: cumin, coriander, cinnamon, mace, and cloves. (in descending order of frequency.)

    Edit: Also, whole spices cannot be beat for flavor or shelf-life.

    ... And if your friend happens to like Indian spice profiles, one of these round stainless spice containers you should get in every Indian store make a nice gift.

    I make a season salt with fresh lavender , rosemary, thyme , fennel , lemon peel,garlic and pepper. We sprinkle on a lot of different stuff going on and or coming off the grill. I'm due to make a batch this week and would be happy to send you some if you'd like Marko. Makes a great gift . I've yet to give it without a request for more.

    Would love to see your process for this!

    I know it is not a spice and sorry if going in this direction is not what you want, but you mentioned the grill so it got me thinking about smoking chips. Get a sampler package from Maine Grilling Woods of different wood chips for smoking on the grill, and they even write on the woods what they are best for -- though I don't follow what they say

    I just used them tonight and smoked some lamb sausage. It was very good.

    +1 on Penzeys. Used them for years--really nice spices.

    I also use penzeys a lot. Get the little jars though. I am in the process of converting my whole spice drawer to penzey's and dating the jars for freshness. I get all of the different cinnamons and most of the paparikas that Penzey's has to offer. I also buy bulk lavender flowers, citrus rinds, and sumac as I use them quite a bit (though this isn't through penzey's).

    You could also get a smaller selection of spices from Penzey's for instance, the book Herbs and Spices, and a gift certificate for some more spices of their choosing. That would be a cool way of starting things off.

    That's a good idea. The friend I was staying with until yesterday had spices he brought with him when he moved to Hawaii in 2001 and thought me a snob because I refused to use them... Well, looks like the guy I moved in with yesterday likes to eat fridge-cold spinach straight out of a can. How did I get here? I gotta connect with these slow food people again...

    That said, I always found the Penzey products to be nice and fresh.
