Has anyone ever used Texas Spice products or services before? I just found their website and they are very local to me. I don't have enough of an idea on BBQ rubs yet, but I sure could go for a less salty version of Tony's seasoning. These guys will do custom blends as well.

Yes, I have bought stuff from Texas Spice Co. They used to have a booth over at the Hwy. 290 Flea Market. Was satisfied with the items I bought from them.

These guys will always be tops in my book. They supplied a big box of rub for us when we did BBQ For The Troops last year at Ft. Hood. They get 2 thumbs up from me and everyone who went with me to Killeen last year.

I have done rubs from some of those companies you listed and they have all been good, but I was specifically not thinking of a rub at this point. Thinking of different types of seasonings (cajun / spicy right now), but my own rub might come into play at some point.

Assuming you mean Tony Chachere's, here ya go... reduce salt as you wish...

Tony Chachere's Cajun Country Cookbook

26 ounces box free flowing salt (Morton's)
1 1/2 ounce box ground black pepper
2 ounce bottle ground red pepper
1 ounce bottle pure garlic powder
1 ounce bottle chili powder
1 ounce carton MSG (accent)

:shock: OK, that's 52 parts salt to 11 parts "other"! No wonder I can't stand most commercial seasoning blends.

Thank you James, that is exactly what I meant. Great starting point. Now I might go for cutting the salt in half (or more) and use a sea salt instead and maybe dropping the MSG. Maybe add some white pepper as well.
