Cajun Seasoning Rub Recipe

Lotta stuff in this rub, but hey, in Louisiana they learned to cook from the kings of complexity, the French. This is your mix for making Andouille Sausages. It can also be used as seasoning for jambalaya, gumbo, and blackened fish. As with all our rub recipes, this one has no salt. You will add salt separately. I explain why in my article on The Science Of Rubs.
