This Page Is The Love/ About Lucius Johnson

Hi everyone and welcome to Lucius’s Shake Down Rubs website. As a Chef, cooking and seasoning foods has been a passion of mine since I was young. I enjoy expressing my talented flavoring through seasoning foods and am ready to combine my brand of salt, herb and spice ingredients with the world.


A Little Story About My Life.

I started to learn how to cook at a pretty young age by watching family how to cook and was intrigued by cooking shows, one day said to myself that I am going to be a chef and there I was in a Culinary Arts Program at the Arts Institute International of Minneapolis.

I was in the food industry for about 15 years plus specializing in American, Mexican  and Soul food (southern) cuisines then decided to change careers but always remained a chef for Family and friends. Once a chef, always a chef at least for me. So one day, I woke up from sleeping and it hit me, a vision of producing my own mixtures of seasonings since I was always good at seasoning foods, told by multiples.


No More Second Guessing.

I am very picky about my seasoned taste buds, the ingredients of my taste are at an extreme flavoring. Instead of becoming confused at what herbs and spices to mix together at that the amount of each, it’ll be done in an all in one bottle of Lucius’s Shake Down Rubs. Test your Buds!!



Over the years as a chef I’ve gained plenty of knowledge and experience from many endless days and hours of mixing and matching plenty herbs, salts and spices to create my own combustion. Now its time to have it part of your seasoning collection or even your main go to everyday flavoring.

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,

Lucius J.

    I absolutely loves these spices. I use the Lemon Pepper Garlic Herb almost every week. I put it on everything. Highly recommended!

    Lucius shake down Rub season is a delicious all purpose seasoning. I use them on beef, pork, chicken, and salads

    I have at least one of every flavor of these shakedown rubs. It’s the only seasonings we use in the house.
    Highly recommend trying all of them. You definitely won’t be disappointed.

    I grabbed a bottle of the Lemon Pepper Garlic Herb as well as the Aztec Maya Inca at the Nicollet Mall Farmers Market. Tried some of the lemon one on some smoked chicken thighs last night and it did not disappoint! Full, well-rounded flavor with a bright burst of lemon. Looking forward to trying the Latin blend on a flank steak soon.

    Picked up a bottle of the Aztec Maya Inca at a Street Fair about 2 months ago. We are already out and needed more! We love putting this on meats of all kind and it makes the best breakfast potatoes. Decided to expand to try the Italian. Can’t wait! Highly recommended to those looking for an easy way to add spice to their cooking.

    I put the Aztec Maya Inca on a roast yard bird/ incredible! My question is it is designed for poultry first, or for long slow cooks like ribs?
