This was a decent recipe.  I'm always trying to find one close to what you actually get in Jamaica.  The real deal is still the best.

Looks good, where's the recipe?
Love jerk chicken, I tried the Walkerswood stuff, never had the real thing so I have nothing to compare anything to.

Thats the recipe i used.  i wanted one that included pineapple juice in the sauce.  This is good but comes out a little too sweet for jerk in my opinion.

thanks TD.  I've never actually had authentic jamaican jerk, just the bottled stuff, so I have no benchmark to compare to.  I sure do like the flavor though. The Walkerswood is good, we usually combine with a little pineapple juice to thin it just a bit.

Looks good from where I'm sitting! If you have leftovers, jerk chicken is GREAT on pizza! There's a pizza place called Mellow Mushroom that started here in Atlanta and is now a franchise all over. They have a pizza called a Maui Wowie that is excellent. It has applewood bacon, ham, jerk chicken, pineapple, banana peppers and uses pesto as the sauce. I freakin' LOVE it! Not to hijack your thread, so I apologize in advance, but I made one not too long ago. It was close, but not quite as good as MM's version (being honest with myself here, lol)

good looking pizza RG.

I think authentic Jerk will always be hard to replicate because they cook over pimento wood which i think adds to the flavor..  I've looked for it online but the wood is price is crazy.  I think it was over $50 for a 5lb bag.  I like Jerk but not paying those pricesl

Yeah, no doubt about it. That's INSANE! It's like Kiawe wood used in Hawaaiin cooking. Mesquite is close but not the same (so I hear). I heard Matty Matheson say that you can get pimento leaves pretty cheap and smoke with them. Might be worth looking into but then again I don't know how well that would work compared to the wood. I still think you can make righteous jerk chicken sans pimento wood. Is it 100% authentic? Nope, but that's okay! It's like everywhere on the planet that smokes meat or cooks over wood. You use what's readily available. Post Oak or Mesquite in Texas, Apple in Pac N West, hickory and Oak in the Southeast US. They all impart a unique flavor.

Either way, I am jonesing for some dang Jerk Chicken right about now!
