    If you have not tried ChefRD's wings, you really owe yourself a try. They are incredible, though Ron is pretty modest about the whole thing.
    His original recipe is here:[p]The wings are fantastic just as posted, but you could substitue his seasonings with your favorite cajun mix. I like to put different seasoning mixtures in each time just to change things up, but the heart of the recipe still remains. My interpretation, complete with pix tures is at the link below. [p]I know it doesn't answer your question on a good cajun rub. Here is a wet rub I have been meaning to try (from The Complete Book on Spices by Jill Norman, published by Viking studio books)
    1 fat clove garlic
    1/2 small onion
    1 tsp paprika
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    1/2 tsp ground cumin
    1/2 tsp mustard powder
    1/2 tsp cayenne
    1 tsp dried thyme
    1 tsp dried oregano
    1 tsp salt[p]Off hand I would prolly notch the cumin down by 1/2 to start, and up the black pepper, as well as adding in some celery seed. Just some idears. Good luck on your quest!

    Nature Boy,
    That is not the breaded recipe is it? Those things rock with a little Swamp Venom.[p]CWM

    Nature Boy,
    Thanks for the kind words Chris and also to Gordon. I have to be modest about the recipe 'cause even tho I like the wings, my co-workers love them, my friends like them, my wife said they are "not her favorite" so I don't make them very often anymore. :)[p]But I do still make my fish the same way (basically) and I ain't gonna change that! ;[p]So thanks for the kind words and I hope to see you guys in a couple of months.[p]later,

    ChefRD, do you go hotter with the fish, looks very interesting for a batch of crappie and perch fillets.

    No, I leave the breading the same, but I Do Not add the lousiana hot sauce at the 15 minute intervals.
    Taste's fine to me like that ;), GREAT on Crappie.
