    Here is the recipe for Tony chacheres in the green can . You can omit all salt if you like salt free or you can add sugar if you want to make it a rub.

    This is the recipe for Tony Chachere's Cajun seasoning in the green can that most of us use.

    1-26oz box of salt ( I cut this by half)

    1-1/2 oz fine ground black pepper

    2 oz cayenne pepper

    1 oz garlic powder

    1 oz chilli powder

    1 oz msg (accent)

    Mix well and use like salt.

    when it's salty enough, It's seasoned to perfection.
    ( If you halve the salt make sure and season to taste or you can get a little spicy!)

    This is from Mr. tonys cook book from 1972

    Strange seeing you here been on chat with you. This is the rub I use most of the time. Was in Mississippi in July this year and found they now make an extra spicy and a bold flavor was unable to get any the store where I was they had sold out just had the original.

    They now make a Tony's spice called "More" I  use it and like it. You can get 'em all on Amazon

    I don't really know abut Cajun seasoning, I know the local restaurant down the road markets Cajun ham, Cajun roast beef, and Cajun pastrami. All they do is add some crawfish boil to a brine and soak before cooking.

    I believe that cooks usually use Thyme and bay to make a Cajun spice blend. Of course you know the Cajun trinity, you could add it to brine also.
