    chef1958's Note:

    Hot and spicy, with a wildly sweet and smokey aroma! It is wonderful on pork, chicken and seafood. This is the next best thing to being on the beach in Negril. YA MON, FER REAL!! This recipe is intended for rotisserie or indirect grilling methods but can also be used for roasting meats in the oven.

    1. 1
      First, soak the wood chips for 30 - 60 minutes in an aluminum pan that can go on the grill.
    2. 2
      Combine and mix all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Save the peels of the limes. Refrigerate the mix for at least an hour (or overnight). Rub the meat with the limes and then the paste. Marinate if you like.
    3. 3
      Next, line the bottom of the grill with a drip pan filled with water and add any remaining spice or juice or lime peels to the water. Center the pan in the grill.
    4. 4
      Now place the pan of wood chips partially filled with water in the front of the grill off to one side.
    5. 5
      Add the meat to the rotisserie - be delicate so the paste remains on the roast. Balance and center the roast and place it one the grill. Close the cover- we leave our cover propped open about an inch.
    6. 6
      Now you can enjoy a Jamaican Red Stripe beer!
    7. 7
      Monitor the grill, try to keep both pans (drip pan and wood chip pan) at least half filled with water.
    8. 8
      Slowly cook the meat at a low constant temperature; add water to the drip pan and the wood chip pan every hour or so, so the smoke is subtle and even.
    9. 9
      Enjoy a Red Stripe!
    10. 10
      Slowley cook a roast for about 6-7 hours on a spit, (Grill steaks or chops or fish according to standard grilling methods.
    11. 11
      When the meat is done let it rest for 15-30 minutes before carving. Serve with rice. Enjoy your Jerk and a Red Stripe!

      I have never been to Jamaica to try those wonderful spicy foods, so had no idea just what I was needing to make them at home. Now that I have made up this spicy blend you won't be finding Jamaican Jerk Seasoning in my grocery cart. Tried this on chops. They were absolutely delicious, the next sunny weekend will be doing that roast! I followed the recipe as printed and won't be changing a thing! Thank you Mary for sharing this great tasting seasoning that is now in my keeper file.
