Southern louisiana-primarily catholic. Northern Louisiana-primarily protestant. Also in the north louisiana, white gravy is used more often than brown gravy.

Don't get me wrong, I've lived in Louisiana most of my life; but traveling beyond these borders gives you an understanding of what life can be outside of the south - how people can be just people if you know what I mean. Most north Louisianans are more pleasant, but still limited in their views of the world in general.

Get ready for a big culture shock.
I was born and raised in S. Louisiana , and still somehow managed to be exposed to cultures and traditions from about half of the other states , and a couple of foreign countries . That kinda shoots a hole in your theory right away . You strike me as somebody that got your fragile feelings hurt , or just had a hard time " fitting in " . More than likely through some fault of your own . Could it be your attitude , perhaps ?

I talking about the drops of tabasco sauce you count as they add it to the food. I know some like it hot no matter where they live. Most restaurants here will have tabasco.
As for tabasco I like it but it not my favoite sauce as the vinegar taste I do not like in all my foods so I look for sauces that have the heat like tabasco but with out the vinegar taste. I finded some but then they went out of business
as for Texas Pete I tried it but not hot at all to me. It is fairly mild, registering 747 on the Scoville heat scale
and Tabasco is 2,500-5,000 SCU on the Scoville scale.
That a big diff in heat there.
of couse i try diff types of hot sauces and even made my own as i find the receipes on the net and if I like what I see i try them out some times.
here one of tghe sauces i made which is very good Piri-Piri and you find it here on this link http://www.gumbopages.com/food/piripiri.html
plus what is good about makeing your own is you can make it hotter of mider to your taste.
Oh the gumbopages is real good on good Louisiana foods
oh i put about ten drops of tabasco on my food. I lived in lafayette from 1970 to 2010 and just moved to Lake Charles. still looking for good cajun food to eat out at but so far just my house

Tabasco sauce is for tourists.
Too salty and vinegary.

My grandparents and great grand parents didn't cook with Tabasco. Neither did my parents. Neither do I.

I'm 100% Cajun. Literally. We don't use that stuff. Avery Island is nice, however.

you right, Sacalaitwhisperer. But in a restaurants many do not have nothing else. not even cayenne pepper. I did ask a few times and they did not have it lol.
Now if I cooking for myself it be cayenne or some other hot pepper. But if I got people comeing over or cooking for others I have to hold back the heat and put out the hot sauces. Piri-Piri is made for cooking but you can add it to the food like a hot sauce too.

I use a lot more Tony Chacheres and Slap Ya Mama seasoning than any kind of hot sauce.

I do too. oh talk about tony Chacheres the receipe of it is on gumbopages. So if you like to change any part of it like if you can not use salt. You can just add the salt sub. for the salt.
here the link
Creole seasoning blend
http://www.gumbopages.com/food/creole.html
i did mix it just like they say and it came out like you buy in the store. Now I can change it anyway i wish too. I leave out he black pepper and just add white pepper in it place
