Jerk chicken is probably the best known Jamaican dish to have been exported from the island. Traditional Jamaican Jerk is a specific method of slow cooking pork. Today beef, chicken, goat or seafood can be seasoned in this manner as well. Authentic jerk from the island is an elaborate blend of seasonings including allspice, black pepper, thyme, scallions, onions, scotch bonnet chiles and numerous other spices. All of its ingredients can be found on the islands lush green landscape. Not all Jerk Seasonings are the same. Most Jerk Seasonings on the market have salt listed as one of the first ingredients. This makes for the less expensive product on their end. Our top quality Jerk Seasoning is salt free.
When using it as a rub we recommend 1 tablespoon of mix per pound of meat. Coat the meat and rub it in and be sure to cover both sides of the meat evenly. Once this is done wash your hands and place the meat in a resealable plastic bag (we prefer to use a large zip lock bag). Place in the refrigerator for at least two hours. For best results we like to leave it refrigerated for up to 8 hours before grilling.
