    Raising Cane's Dip

    I'm grateful to all who have been so willing to share their knowledge with me. Many pioneers and innovators spent countless years refining their craft/technique/recipes and now that information can be passed on with the click of a few buttons.

    That being said, I'd like to offer a small contribution of my own. There's a highly successful chicken finger restaurant chain known as Raising Canes that started near LSU back in the late 90's. They've since gone on to open locations nationwide, with the furthest being Las Vegas, Nevada as far as I know.

    Their second location was opened in my very own hometown of Lafayette, only a few blocks away from my home.

    They offer a very small menu of chicken fingers, a few sides, sweet tea and fresh lemonade.

    They don't offer ranch, bbq sauce or honey mustard. Instead, they offer a highly popular dipping sauce that is very reminiscent of what us "coonasses" (read:cajun) often use as a dip for boiled crawfish.

    The recipe is passed off as top secret, but I'm here to tell you, it's not nearly as well guarded as the CocaCola recipe or Colonel Sander's original recipe.

    If you'd like to make it at home, you can use the following recipe, I've been making it for years.

    P.S. - It goes well with more than just chicken.

    1 cup Kraft Mayonaise (Regular, not light)
    1/2 cup Heinz Ketchup
    1 Tbsp Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce
    1 tsp McCormick Garlic Powder
    1 tsp McCormick Coarse Ground Black Pepper

    Mix it up and set in the fridge overnight. The flavors need time to meld. It won't taste right if you try to use it right away.

    Merry Christmas guys and gals!

    Thanks Steve. Dad went back to Gueydan this morning, fog was too thick to hunt, and he whipped up some fried tenders last night. I was able to scarf a few more down this morning for lunch with some Hot Buffalo Wing sauce.

    Have to check this out. Love me some Mayo. Been to Canes once in Nacogdoches. Those tenders must have come off 12 pound birds!!!


      nice. i live in vegas and eat at them from time to time.


        Thanks for sharing the recipe! I love their Texas toast as most restaurants have forgotten how to offer it on a menu these days.

            Yeah, oldest step daughter whipped up a batch so she could try it the next day. VERY good. I've always loved eating shrimp and crawfish in a ketchup/mayo mixture.

            Excellent! Me too, I even dip my toast in the sauce. You can almost use it where ranch would be used.

            Toss in some of my wife's homemade pickle relish and you have a kick butt 1000 island dressing/secret sauce.

          I don't mean to go off topic. Do you guys not think their brine is their secret.

          White meat is bland, I'm more a dark meat fan.
          But canes tenders are are so juicy and flavourful.
          Their breading is boring but the actual chicken is brilliant...(In my humble opinion)


            I dunno. The tenders we had were HUGE. I had a supervisor that said she culled out the dino-tenders and would give them to her husband.

            I wasn't impressed except for the sesame seeds on the bread and the sauce.


              Yes, their chicken is rather juicy. Cane's claims to brine them for 24 hours. What Cane's doesn't tell you is that they're loaded with MSG. But that's to be expected of most fast food chicken joints.


                If you're interested in the brine, you should check out Dr. Blonders website, genuine.ideas.com. It's the best resource online, I've actually been having a question and answers discussion with him. Although, I don't know if it's on the forums.

                I know all about the MSG legend but it doesn't add up. If your brine results in an internal msg percentage above 0.1%, you will impart a metallic taste to the meat.

                Anyway, I travelled across the Atlantic to try Canes. I don't think you're far from what was the very first location. How would you compare Canes to Zaxby's or Chickfila.

                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.
