Several years ago I remember reading an article in GQ called "Getting Past Legend" (or something like that. It was many years, and even more rum punches, ago). The gist of the article was that Bob Marley's classic compilation album, released in 1984, is in virtually everyone's music collection. It has sold over 25 million copies worldwide and is enjoyed by virtually every demographic. And as incredible as that number is, the article went on, most people stop there and their knowledge of Bob Marley's music is limited to those 15 tracks. The article then went on to getting the reader "Past Legend" and recommended album after Bob Marley album, with synopsis, to inform the reader of where to go next to expand their music knowledge of this musical icon.
The Jerk Central Blog/Recipe Page is dedicated to "Getting You Past Jerk Chicken!"
Even those who have never been to Jamaica are familiar with one of the island's most popular and signature dishes. It's one of the first things tourists and "yardies" (Jamaicans) alike, seek out when getting to Jamaica and looking for a welcoming local dish.
But there is so much more to jerk than jerk chicken and jerk pork! That's one of the fabulous things about jerk. You are truly only limited by your own imagination. Have you ever had jerk salmon? Jerk steak? Jerk shrimp or Jerk lobster? If you haven't you are missing out! One of my favorite meals comes from liberally seasoning a nice juicy ribeye with Jerk Central's Jerk Dry rub and throwing it on the grill. It's fantastic! Another favorite of mine is to use the Jerk Dry Rub, instead of traditional BBQ rub, on spare ribs and smoking them low and slow to perfection. And that's not all! Around the holidays I'll use Jerk Central's Jerk Marinade in a butter rub and slather it on a 4 bone prime rib and roast it to a nice medium rare. And those are just a few favorites!
