Jerked chicken or pork is okay. Some people are heavy-handed on the habaneros, (Scotch Bonnet peppers) and allspice. To me what is really missing is "smoke".
Here are the basic ingredients you throw into a food processor to mince and rub it into about six pounds of chicken chill for a couple hours, you and the chicken):
½ teaspoon allspice, ground
1 tablespoon thyme, dried
6 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
2 tablespoons fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
2-4 whole, fresh habanero chiles, seeded
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
1/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup green onions, sliced
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2-4 tablespoon lime juice
6 pounds chicken parts
Dave, I need a couple days notice but I'll bring the Red Stripe!
