Great recipe smokey, might I also suggest adding a little bit of all-spice. True Jerk- Jamaican style, is cooked over a bed of allspice (pimento) wood. Unfortunately, due to export restrictions, allspice wood is practically impossible to get a hold of. If you don't want to add the allspice seasoning to the recipe, get yourself some allspice berries and use them as you would wood chips, by soaking them for about an hour in water or what have you, and adding them to the heat source by directly throwing them on the coals or putting them in a smoker box or smoke pouch. This should bring home some of the authentic jerk taste. BTW, if anyone has a source for allspice wood, I'd love to hear it- thank you in advance.
