Pimento wood smoked Jerk Pork, Chicken & Steak w/ Rice & peas and Sweet Plantains - Q-view

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

I got married in Jamaica and that is also one of my favorite places to travel to. I was fortunate enough to learn a lot of the techniques and recipes from my travels to Jamaica from numerous Jerk shack owners and roadside oil drum cookers. Caribbean food is one of my favorite cuisines so I throw maybe 2 Jerk parties a year. Unfortunately I do not have all of the pictures from this party so I will make this short and sweet with what I have.

 

 

Jerk marinated pork loins and as always ABT's

Jerk Chicken

Pork cut up and ready, chicken (bottom grate) about to hit the grill (filled with lump pimento wood charcoal) for a quick skin crisp

 

evo pics 702.jpg

 

Nice smoke ring on that loin

 

evo pics 704.jpg

 

Rice and Peas (rice and beans)

 

evo pics 705.jpg

 

Chicken and Pork some of the chicken got a little too crispy (sorry about the bad pictures, stupid flash)

 

evo pics 706.jpg

 

 

Pork with a little extra jerk sauce drizzled over it

evo pics 707.jpg

 

Steak from that day was grilled, sliced thin and served as a appetizer with jerk sauce for dipping (didn't make the photos along with the fabulous coco bread I made, I know, I know didn't happen, it's OK cause I will do this again soon)

 

This is the next night dinner with the plantains, rice & peas, some pork and jerk steak

Just looking at these pictures while posting makes me smell the jerk sauce, I have to make this again soon.

 

 

Thanks for looking!

Your killing me Chef, I haven't had ox tail in years (the last time I was in Jamaica) but now I will put that on the to-do list. That Matouk's West Indian Hot Sauce is really good too, my bottle ran out not to long ago, gotta buy some more even though it is tough to convince the wife that I need more hot sauce. Does she not understand each sauce is used for different things? Looks like it's only a couple of hours to get here, let me know when and I'll get the food going, you might want to bring more then a case of Red Stripe though, I mean if your drinking any cheers.gif

Wow, that looks so good I think I just drooled all over my keyboard.

 

I have never had jerked chicken before, or steak for that matter.

 

Looks great though...

 

 

Happy Smokin'

Got an old time Roman recipe for oxtail, celery,veal stock ,red wine sort of deal. Supposedly came down from the workers in the slaughter houses in what was the old Jewish quarter in Rome.  They were paid in cheap cuts,so there were tripe,oxtail,tongue,etc.

Thanks ptcruiserguy! You should definitely give Jerk a try, it's a great blend of flavors with a nice kick of heat.

I always have reggae playing the whole time at these parties with a little soca (for my friends from Trinidad) mixed in.
