The Original, The Best, JERK
This is how Jamaicans BBQ. From the streetfood on the roadsides to back yard cuisine. Fine dining in the town, Jerk drums in the country or on the beaches, you can always find this amazing mixture of Jamaican herbs and spices flowing through the air!
Local folklore tells of Jerk having been created by the Maroons, runaway slaves, as a seasoning for wild pig which was smoked over green pimento leaves and buried in the hillsides of the Blue Mountains to avoid detection from the English Redcoats. This very versatile rub adds an authentic kick to chicken, lamb, beef, pork, fish & vegetarian dishes.
Simply rub a small amount – 1oz jerk seasoning: 2.2lbs / 1kg – into your meat or fish, for best results marinate overnight to absorb the spicy flavor and then cook until done on your barbeque or in your oven.
