We love this-really, really close to the jerk chicken we had on Cayman Island! Use the whole spices and grind them, it does make a difference. Make 1 batch of the jerk and it will serve you for two separate recipes. Keeps well.
You need to grill the marinated chicken with real wood and leaves from the allspice tree and only one place sells these products www.pimentowood.com - the smoking makes the flavor amazingly enhanced
