OT - Jerkin' around in Jamaica

A few folks asked me to take some shots from vacation to share on the forum.

We've got 3 days left here...and it's been nothing but fun and sun ( on Wed. night when I told the girls I could hang with them to the nightclub) I hung alright, fell down, and had to be coaxed off standing on a barstool at one point. I ruined yesterday due to all of this fun...didn't eat a single thing the entire day. My stomach had no interest in anything but some american grub. Worse yet, I only had a craving for Pizza Hut, as I watched 100 of their commercials while sick in the room. We don't eat Pizza Hut when we're home, no idea why I craved it. Even the Bob Marley spleef did not help! :whistle:

Anyway...everyday at lunch there is a Jerk Shack where they serve chicken, pork (chops), and sausage. They offer a hot Jerk sauce and a sweet sauce (pretty sure they just add ketchup to it). In a few trips to JamRock, this is the best jerk food I've had outside the little 'shacks'. Of course, not complete without the tradtiional Rice and Peas. I'm going to try to get better pictures.

While not cooking on an Egg, 'The Jerkmaster' (yes, thats his title)is using a very cool charcoal grill. Awesome smell on the beach, and the line is long...until it's all gone.

Ya mon!

    Looks like some good eats there! Your bar room story brings to mind a scenario when a group of us vacationed in Rio a while back. One afternoon we gathered at a watering hole and consumed copious amounts of a Brazilian cocktail (the name of which I can't recall, and don't really care to)! What I do remember is viewing the tiled floor at extremely close range while trying to keep the ceiling in focus! It was a fun time, but the next day was not too great..

    Try to get a jerk receipe while you are there. Both for a marinade and sauce. I have a receipe for Jerk Pork I've made a few times but there is always room for improvement. Those pictures look delicious.

    Fornia-You're missing out on all the fun here in Berks County with the lady that fell in the fountain while texting at the Berkshire Mall. A Youtube sensation. One day she's front page of the Reading Eagle whining about the security guards not running to her rescue. The next day she's on Good Morning America with her lawyer looking to hold someone accountable for posting the video on Youtube. Then we find out she had to appear in Berks County court later that morning for a hearing on her "alleged" unauthorized use of someone elses credit cards. Too funny.
    Have a nice trip!

    Trying hard to get something good to share in regards to a jerk marinade/sauce recipe, but have yet to strike up anything specific. I have however received a few 'all the good tings of Jamaica', and Scotch Bonnets in regards to ingredients. B)

    No worries...I did see our local Berks County 'Mall Fountain Diver' has made it big time. Was watching news in the room late the other night and saw the story via the local LA (?) news we get here in Montego Bay.

    Happy to hear she is trying to stess the importance of safety while texting and walking at the same time! Serious?!?!

    Last night I told my wife that I missed our Egg. She just doesn't understand. :blush: It'll be back to 0 degree weather and snow in no time. Can hardly wait to shovel the frozen snow on my driveway. :angry:
