Thanks for posting this recipe. I've been looking for a jerk seasoning recipe since I haven't been able to find the McCormick seasoning I used to buy. Next time I might use a little less allspice and nutmeg but I like it either way.

This makes a great jerk seasoning mix. I used it for Paula-Deen-pig-on-a-stick-with-dipping-sauce and it was fantastic. Will definitely keep a batch of this around. I did halve the recipe and it made plenty.

We really enjoyed this jerk seasoning. A first for me. Great flavors. It was spicy so next time I'll ratchet it down a notch (less cayene). DH thought it was perfect. Thanks for posting Pneuma!

Ya, mon, excellent. We had it on grilled pork chops last night and it was super! I am thinking of using the rest in a jerk sauce variation. Thanks Pneuma for sharing a keeper. Made while "cruising" the Caribbean during ZWT5 for the Chow Hounds.

Thanks! This was a breeze to throw together...my first time making jerk seasoning. I also made this for ZWT5 (Cooks with Dirty Faces Team) and used it in "Caribbean Rice in a Rice Cooker". Will use the rest for our next bbq.

I've usually used a "wet" jamaican jerk seasoning, such as Busha Browne's, but I use dry rubs on my ribs quite often. So I was ready to try this, and I loved the smell and taste of the combination of onion, chives, thyme, allspice, brown sugar, cayenne and black pepper, garlic powder, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Of course, it wouldn't be complete without salt! I used kosher salt, and reduced it by 1/4 tbsp. Great Jerk Seasoning mix...thanks for posting it. Made for ZWT5.
