Jerk Cooking

  • Jerk Chicken
  • Jerk Pork
  • Jerk-Beef


  • Jerk cooking is the authentic Jamaican way to prepare and cook pork, seafood and beef over a fire pit or a special Jerk Drum. What makes this style of cooking so unique is the special combination of seasoning used to create the jerk marinade (jerk seasoning). These include a combination of scallions, onions, thyme, pimento (allspice), cinnamon, nutmeg, scotch bonnet pepper and salt.
     
    The origination of the term “Jerk” varies. The most accepted theory in Jamaica relates to the process of cooking: during grilling the meat or seafood is turned over and over again (jerked over and over again) until it is fully cooked.
     
    The secret to authentic jerk cooking is the way the meat is seasoned: the jerk seasoning is marinated into the meat for at least 4-12 hours before cooking. The meat is then cooked slowly over an open fire pit or in the conventional oven or convection oven in your home. In Jamaica, the open fire is usually made from allspice wood (Pimento wood) which gives the meat that natural smoky taste.
