Jerk Chicken Recipe

edited 9:05PM in EggHead Forum
Hi Char-Buddy,[p]I just got word that you were looking for the recipe I used
at eggfest in Waldorf back in April. Here 'tis:[p]Basically it's a modification of "Jackson's Jerk Chicken"
as printed in "Weber's Art of the Grill". - With meat proportions,
cooking times, and temperature settings completely disregarded. ;)[p]6 scallions (chopped)
1 shallot (chopped)
2 scotch bonnet chiles (finely chopped including seeds)
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 1/2 tbsp of your favorite hot pepper sauce
- consider changing the proportion on this based
on your sauce. this much "dave's insanity" could
kill a man...
1 tbsp alspice.
2 tbsp grated fresh ginger
1/4 tsp grated nutmeg
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp veg oil
1 tbsp kosher salt
1 tsp coarsely ground pepper.[p]Toss it all in a blender (and blend) until smooth. [p]Typically I will create a brine for 8 hours or so and then
dry the chicken off transfer it to the jerk marinate for
another 8 to 24 hours. yesterday I skipped the brine and
only managed 8 hours in the jerk for some bone-in breasts.[p]They were great after 2 hours, indirect, @ 275.[p]Have fun![p]
