Figured I'd go ahead and post my Cajun Turkey Rub recipe for you guys... Thanksgiving is just around the corner!!

Indaswamp's Cajun Turkey Rub

1/4 cup Paprika
1/4 cup Sea Salt-No table salt (med.~fine grind; I used mortons sea salt)
1 TBSP. + 1 tsp White Pepper
1 TBSP. + 1 tsp Black Pepper
1/8 cup garlic powder
1/8 cup onion powder
2 tsps. dried thyme leaves
2 tsps. dried oregano leaves
2 tsps. dried sage leaves

( I put all the herb leaves in a coffee grinder with a pinch of salt and chop them up finely. The salt helps to separate the sage leaves. )

1 tsp. ground bay leaf
1/2 tsp. ground sassafras leaves (file' powder)
1/2 tsp. ground marjoram leaves
1/2 tsp. ground coriander seed
2 tsps. Creole seasoning (I used Cajun injector seasoning mix)

Makes just over 1 cup of seasoning. I just put it in a left over shaker. This is good on chicken too, but really makes a Turkey IMO!

Turkey is stuffed with fruits, seasoned, injected, and in the fridge for the skin to dry...

Just put the bird on. I'm using hickory and some of the wild black cherry I cut back in May. Been 7 months so the chunks should be well seasoned by now.
