    WizzyTheStick's Note:

    This recipe comes from the cookbook, "Eat Caribbean" by Jamaican, Virginia Burke. Jerk is a style of cooking developed by the "maroons" (run away slaves ) of Jamaica. There are very many versions of Jamaican Jerk Marinades. It can be used on on pork, chicken or fish. A blender or food processor can be used to make quick work of all the chopping.

      This is one of the best Jerk Recipes I have come across with in a very long time. A local bar I go to sells this on friday as a special. I make it at home on the grill and bring it to them. Cheers.

      this is definitely jamaican jerk!! but dont be afraid to substitute black molasses for the brown sugar... thats what they used when I was in jamaica.. gives it a real deep/dark tone. great recipe.
