    I have a jerk chicken spatch on right now. Made the "wet rub" aka short-term marinade on a work night. Smells great though.

    Tony's is not too spicy. Do you have any rubs or would ou be making your own? Dizzy Dust is a solid fall back plan

    I want to use Tony's, but my wife is somewhat spicy sensitive.

    I was thinking just a normal season salt and Tony's for a rub

    Hmmmm... I find that by the time I get enough heat with Tony Chachere's the food is then too salty. I was given a sample bottle of Red Claw Cajun Seasoning by the guy who developed and markets it. His sons and my son are taking karate together and we talk while they're in class. I had complained about Tony Chachere's being too salty so he went to his car and got me a bottle. When we seen that it was gluten free we gave it to our boys Godmother who has become extremely allergic to gluten. She loved it. Now we by it locally at the supermarket and we like it.... a LOT.

    I'm having a hard time answering your question though because all of the work arounds that we had developed
    involving Tony Chachere's were all aimed at ramping UP the heat in order to minimize the salt.

    I concur with Parallel.  For us, Tony's gets way too salty before it gets too hot.  We use it like spicy salt.  If I want to add heat, I mix up my own spice.  Same in the reverse if you find it too hot.

    I would go simple old bay or something tame on half and then put Tony's on your side. Best of both worlds and she can try a bite if you don't' find it spicy then maybe next time you can do the whole thing. 

    I use the regular butter injectables all the time for turkey, My next turkey breast will be creole butter with Swamp Venom! Now I just need to order the Dizzy Pig, I only had the sampler of that one and used it all for Fat Tuesday… 

    @Skiddymarker posted the idea about half one way and half the other, which I think is great to try different rubs to see what you like best.

    Didn't see this until now, but this weekend we are planning a brined spatchcock chicken rubbed 1/2 with Penzey's Ozark and 1/2 with McCormick's Cajun. SWMBO came up with the idea of leaving some of the bird not rubbed so the grandkids would eat, that kind of evolved into rubbing each chicken with at least two rubs when the grandkids were not with us. 
    So many rubs and so few chickens,,,,

    Sure @Skiddymarker I think it is a great idea, I have yet to do it. But I will soon.

  • In one of Tony Chachere's  books there is the exact recipe to make the stuff, it is no cheaper to make your self but you can cut way down on the salt, if you make your own and add more heat if you like

  • If you really want to add some Cajun here is the recipe for the original Toney Chachere  you can cut down on the salt to your liking or add more red pepper to your taste
    :-bd
    Tony’s All-purpose Famous
    Creole Seasoning

    26-ounce box salt                    1 ounce pure garlic powder
    1 ½  ounces ground black pepper            1 ounce chili powder
    2 ounces ground red pepper                1 ounce monosodium
                                    Glutamate (Accent)


    Mix well and use like salt.  When it’s salty enough, it’s seasoned to perfection.  If too peppery for children, add more salt to mixture, and then season to taste. 
    THIS IS IT!!!!
