    Ive tried so many times to duplicate a JA jerk chicken meal at home, and always failed. Ive tried so many different types of jerk sauces sold in Jamaica and they fail. The good stuff is made from scratch. I started watching Levi Roots on the cooking channel. He makes his own jerk sauce, which is an old recipe passed down from his grandmother. He sells his own sauce and calls it Reggae Reggae Sauce. During one of his shows he mentions using his Reggae sauce or Walkerwoods sauce. I decided to buy some Walkerswood on Amazon. I mixed the sauce with olive oil and Red Stripe, as instructed by Levi Roots. This was by far the closest experience Ive had at home to a true jerk chicken meal. IMO, Walkerswood is about the closest ting to the real deal. Now I just need to learn how to make coconut bread or rice bread.

    Here's a link to Levi Roots and some of his Caribbean recipes:

    I bring back home made jerk sauce all the time. I have our cook put it in a Meyers Rum bottle. The bottle is dark enough were customs can't see through it. Just don't carry it on the flight with you. Make sure it's checked in your baggage. No problems!

    Marinade or sauce? Marinade use Island Gourmet(hard to find) or on the the island it seems to be made by the Grace co.Thin it out with olive oil and beer.Those were the closest I had to the old "DaBus" jerk stand. Imo,the best ever. For sauce try Last stop,Best in west.Stop at Bigga's stand just outside Green Island,great sauce with lots of heat.

    The only place I've ever had jerk sause that made me hiccup was Boston Beach, the birth place of jerk. We had bought some jerk and a bottle of sauce from a vendor and took it back to our hotel. The restaurant didn't have room service, but of course they did if you showed proper respect. The waiter brought our rice and veggies to the room and when he spotted what I had on my plate he advised, "That's really hot. mon." Sure, sure. I dipped the first bite of meat into the sause and popped it into my mouth. Hic! Hic! The swaet was beading up fast on Marblehead's smooth pate. That was some serious jerk and sauce. Port Antonio and the eastern end of the island is worth the journey if only to visit Boston Beach and sample the original deal. Respect --Marblehead
    We're all in this together and none of us is getting out alive.
