* 4 medium to large russet potatoes
* 2 quarts cooking oil (8 cups)
* 1/2 tsp garlic powder
* 1/2 tsp onion powder
* 3/4 tsp dried oregan
* 1 tsp smoked paprika
* 1 1/2 tsp AwShit

Garlic Aioli
* 1 cup mayonnaise
* 3 cloves garlic minced
* 1 pinch sea salt
* 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice 


1. Add cooking oil to a deep, heavy-bottomed pot over medium high heat and to bring up to 325°F.
2. Preheat oven to 200°F and place a baking sheet on the middle rack.
3. Wash and cut potatoes into 1 inch sticks. Prep a plate or second baking sheet with a cooling rack set on top, near your oil pan.
4. When oil is up to temperature, carefully drop in half the french fries. Gently stir and allow to fry for 2 to 3 minutes.
5. Remove from oil with a strainer or tongs and lay them on the cooling rack set over the baking sheet in a single layer.
6. Cook the second batch of fries when oil returns to 325°F.
7. When fries have been fried once, bring oil temperature up to 375°F.
8. Drop the first batch of fries into the oil carefully, and stir occasionally until the fries are crispy and golden brown, usually 2 to 3 minutes.
9. Remove from oil to a bowl lined with paper towels. Toss gently to remove excess oil, then remove the paper towels. Add in the spice blend and toss.
10. Place seasoned cajun fries on a baking sheet in the oven and fry your second batch of fries. Repeat blotting and seasoning, then serve all the fries when ready.
