  Ok looking for an opinion out there from users of blackened seasonings.  What are people's choices out there? I have used a couple brands 1 I liked and the other is so so. Not as common up here in Canada. SO I am going to order some on amazon along with Jeff's book and A twine dispenser...... Wife doesn't know yet... 
Cajun spice make your own!
1 part red,white and black pepper,garlic,onion powder,salt and paprika
1/2 part thyme and oregano.
Tone's makes a great one, it's a little lower in salt than most of the other commercial brands.

If you have a Sam's Club up there, they carry it.

I have used the Tone's product with positive results as it seems SmokinAl has. But I am a huge fan of making my own rubs and mixed seasonings, so now I feel the need to try b-one's recipe on some chops.
From the man who started the craze:  Prudhomme's recipe.
  • 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
  • 2 [sup]1[/sup]⁄[sub]2[/sub] teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • [sup]3[/sup]⁄[sub]4[/sub] teaspoon white pepper
  • [sup]3[/sup]⁄[sub]4[/sub] teaspoon black pepper
  • [sup]1[/sup]⁄[sub]2[/sub] teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • [sup]1[/sup]⁄[sub]2[/sub] teaspoon dried oregano leaves
Voice of caution and experience:  do not attempt blackening indoors absent a commercial grade vent hood.  It doesn't end well, trust me.
