Walkerswood Jerk marinade - I get it now

I've made my own jerk marinade for years now and it is a family favorite.

I've heard enough people mention Walkerswood jerk marinade on here and other bbq forums that it seemed like a standard among the grilling crowd.   Any time that jerk chicken came up, someone always praised Walkerswood.  I thought it would be good to try it but didn't want to go through ordering it online.

This weekend I was in Kroger's and saw it on the shelf for $6.99.  I bought it and used it tonight on plain ol' chicken breasts (5 hour marinade).

Grilled them 5 minutes a side at 400f (they were pounded thin) on my large Egg and made jerk chicken sandwiches with them.  Served them with some sweet potato fries and a jerk mayo made with mayo, DP Firewalk, and lime juice.

I totally get it now.  Wow that is some good stuff, the whole family raved about it.  It has a flavor and heat that defines jerk.  I was very impressed and can't wait to try it on some wings. 

I should have listened to you guys/gals earlier.

    Thanks henapple.  Looks are deceiving, the sweet potato fries were lame.  The recipe I used guaranteed "crispy fries" and they were not.  Tasted good, but texture was not there. 

    But the jerk chicken sandwiches?  They were the tops.

    My wife does "fries" in the oven. Slice, dip in egg and sprinkle with parmesan. Cook to your desired crispness.

    Glad you finally tried it and liked it. Did you taste it before you marinated the chicken? I always thought the heat ends up cooking out of it in the end. I'd prefer a bit more heat, but its not bad in a pinch.

    Walkerswood is good stuff.  Found it at the local asian grocer for $3.99 a bottle.  Thanks for the reminder to restock.

    Nice basket Chris.

    Nice looking basket! Walkerswood Mild Jerk is tasty on wings! It is plenty hot for me but I can't handle much heat.

    I have a jar of their Hot & Spicy Jerk (made with scotch bonnets) that I'm almost afraid to try.
