    Best Blackened Seasonings

    Hey guys, I thought I’d check with y’all and see if anyone’s got a favorite Blackened Seasoning mix they like. I’ve tried a lot over the years, but I’ve found this to be my favorite. It’s Louisiana Brand Cajun Blackened Seasoning mix. Makes killer blackened ribeyes, catfish and is even good for grilled chicken wings. Just curious if y’all have a favorite also. If you can’t find this in your grocery store, Amazon’s got it.

    That's my go-to right there.

      Thanks! You’re a smart man with good taste! 😄

    I like Paul Prudhomme‘s blackened redfish magic. It’s probably on the same shelf as the Louisiana Cajun blackened seasoning. I’m gonna have to go pick some of that up and try it!

      I used to buy the Blackened Steak Magic, and thought it was the bomb. I've not seen it in my local grocery store for a few years though. I would just dip a steak in melted butter, then coat in the blackened steak magic, and then into a blazing hot cast iron skillet. Best steaks ever...

    Don't have one. Yet. Thanks!


      I like blackened steak and fish - that is the main reason I bought a Lodge 12" CI skillet many years ago. I'll have to keep an eye out for this seasoning.


        The problem with just about any spice blend or rub you buy is the first ingredient is salt. If you want a heavy crust of rub or a heavy dose of flavor you'll end up over-salting.

        Check out Meathead 's recipe on the free side. It has something like 16 ingredients and the flavor profile is incredible. Just add salt separately.



          Welcome to the Pit from Dallas! I usually mix my own.


            Here’s some chicken wings I did with the Louisiana Brand Blackened Seasoning. Marinated them in some Good Seasons Italian Dressing for a couple of hours first. Turned out as some of my best ever.

            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
