I like freshly ground black pepper. I don't know why, but this spice just seems more robust when freshly ground, at least to me. I own a number of pepper mills, ranging in materials from plastic, to wood to metal. Some are battery powered. Many aren't worth diddly (mostly the plastic mills, and battery powered one I have isn't very good either.) Olde Thompson wood pepper mills probably enjoy the lion's share of the market in restaurants. I've owned a couple. I bought 1 from a restaurant supplier in St Louis, on my friend, Sandy's advice that they were considered the best in the industry. They do work pretty well, but I like this one that I bought 8 or 9 years ago quite a bit better - It is, hands down, the best pepper mill that I have ever owned or used: http://www.wmboundsltd.com/shopexd.asp?id=133FWIW,Bob
I toss peppercorns in an old blade-style coffee grinder that I use for grinding spices. Nothing beats freshly ground pepper. It also does a great job on coarse grind, ideal for making homemade cheater pastrami.

an old blade-style coffee grinder that I use for grinding spices.I like using an 'lectric Mr Coffee grinder for grinding most spices - currently on sale for a buck off at K-Marts:http://www.kmart.com/shc/s/p_10151_10104_9990000006565211P?s...
Nothing beats freshly ground pepper.Da problem wid pre-ground black pepper is dat da oils in da peppercorn quickly evaporate and it loses much of its taste. ;-(C.J.V. - don’t use much black pepper but lots of different red peppers, me
I also had a cheap hand crank tea grinder that I picked up in Taiwan that worked pretty well for grinding spices as well as tea leaves. The William Bounds pepper mill remains the best pepper mill that I've tried.
Looks like a nice one. We picked up a decent one also (forget where). I believe the grinder is ceramic.Don't want to use spinning blades (on spices or coffee) as it acts like a centrifuge and removes the oils.There is always this: http://www.everythingkitchens.com/frieling-granite-mortar-an...
