Jamaican Style BBQ

Jamaican Style BBQ

Most people’s mouths start to water at the sound of jerk chicken – tender chicken dry rubbed or wet marinated in hot spices and ingredients like sugar, garlic, salt and thyme. This week’s blog is on a Jamaican Style BBQ!

Jerk Chicken

Originally cooked in a fire pit, jerk chicken should have a smokey flavour. This used to be achieved by cooking the chicken in a smokey fire pit but in modern days people use wood burning ovens, oil barrels or steel drums.

Here’s a recipe for jerk chicken seasoning
