In a heavy-bottomed pot, preheat the vegetable oil to 350 degrees. Add the potatoes and fry until golden, about 5-7 minutes. Transfer the fries to a large bowl and toss with BBQ Spice. Serve.

To make BBQ Spice, place all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until everything is very well combined and almost pulverized. Sprinkle desired amount over hot French fries and toss well.
