Tony Chachere's Cajun Seasoning

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I am planning to do a couple of butts this weekend. I just read Jeff's post for the finishing sauce. A cajun seasoning is mentioned. I haven't looked yet, but do you think that seasoning is going to be available everywhere. If not , does anyone know of a suitable substitute?

TC's is usually available everywhere. If you cant find it, you can always use some of the rub you used on your butts. Emeril also has one. Hope this helps.

In his Carolina pulled pork sandwich recipe , he mentions over smoking the meat. If I am doing a butt, will I foil it or let it smoke the whole time, until the temp reaches 200.

I plan on using his rub, then the finishing sauce mentioned above.

Hi Rick!...

You can find the recipe for Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning in this post:


This came from Tony's 1st cookbook (1982) entitled 'Tony Chachere's Cajun Country Cookbook'...PDT_Armataz_01_18.gif...

I think 'Morton Salt' is available in 26 oz. boxes only, so, the 20 oz. measurement is probably a typo...

Hope this helps...

Until later...

just some advice (been using that stuff fer more years & i hate it but a coonazz won't eat w/out it) use the low sodium if ya can find it- ya can get it in any walmart- green can or white. p.s. i'd rather use emeril's- same stuff but not as many smg's

ican give ya a recipe to make the same stuff but less sodium & more natural.

tony's is great - but as someone said earlier, you have to watch the salt - it can get pretty overwhelming

I prefer Zatarain's Creole Seasoning myself...but alas...it too has way too much salt!!...

If the amount of salt is an issue...I'd suggest using only half as much salt as the Tony's recipe calls for...that is...if you wanna use the Tony's in the finishing sauce.

Like Gypsy was saying though...try Emeril's!...

Until later...

That's one of my favorites on chiicken, but haven't tried it on a pork butt yet - let us know how that turns out!

I can find his Cajun all over the place. Never have found any of his Creole though. Slap your Mama or Konriko are good also.

I found the TC's creole but not the cajun. Is there a big difference between the 2?
post #13 of 22
Zattarins (sp?) is always a good one.

What about heat? Are any of these options to spicy. My wife can't tolerate too much heat. If so maybe you can suggest something else.

thanks to all
