When H. T. duPerier of New Iberia, Louisiana (1899-1991) developed the first and original Heifer Dust (pronounced Heffer Dust) seasoning back in the early 1920’s, he had no idea that 100 years later, it would become a staple of many backyard griller’s and cooks kitchens. At the time, he was trying to preserve that south Louisiana flavor that his mother cooked with, and to make his wife’s Sunday pot roast taste a little better. When we found his secret recipe tucked away in his family cookbook in the early 1970’s and made it for ourselves, we found out that this gourmet heifer dust rub goes good everything in the kitchen, not just the infamous Sunday roast. The flavors are a little salty, paprika, a hint of garlic with a little pepper. Sorry, we had to add a little MSG to make up for the loss of sodium and flavor. This blend is amazingly smooth and not over powering in any way.
If you are serious about your outdoor grilling, smoking and cooking, we encourage you to try our heifer dust products any way you like. They both taste especially good on your favorite cut of steak, chicken, poultry, pork, seafood, raw oysters, char grilled oysters, wild game, even french fries, baked potatoes and even on the rim of your favorite Bloody Mary drink. You can use them like salt and pepper and as a meat rub if you like. If you are serious about smoking, you are welcome to add more granulated garlic and or brown sugar if you like. Our all purpose seasoning is the most versatile seasoning on the market. It compliments food just the way it is.
Introducing Gourmet Creole Butter Seasoning
Our second gourmet seasoning “Creole Butter” was inspired by Professional Offshore Fishing Guide, Captain Troy Frady of Orange Beach, Alabama. He is the grandson of H.T. and spend many hours as a child learning how to cook the way his pawpaw taught him. The newest flavor is a Creole Buttery Grilling Seasoning. It is another flavorful tool for your grill or your favorite meal. This Creole seasoning is special and is nothing like traditionally marketed creole seasonings that are filled with paprika, cayenne pepper, etc. We removed the traditional red color (paprika), cut the sodium by 25% and added a buttery flavor with slight hint of garlic and finished with a light lemony flavor so even the pickiest of food lovers could enjoy. This creole grilling seasoning goes good on everything. It especially enhances the flavor of grilled chicken, pork, shrimp, oysters, fish and grilled vegetables.
Sorry, we had to add a hint of MSG to these products because we cut so much sodium out of them. This is also a Gluten Free Product.
