Directions

Add the brown sugar, cider vinegar, allspice, nutmeg, thyme, garlic, scallions, Scotch bonnet pepper and some salt and pepper to a food processor. Process the ingredients into a paste, and then rub this over the chicken. Allow the chicken to marinate overnight in the refrigerator.

Preheat a grill on medium high. Grill the chicken quarters until cooked through, about 40 minutes.

    Cooking chicken at medium high heat in smaller pieces will cause it to be dry and overcooked.

    Low and slow is the way to go = 250-275 degrees for 2.5-3 hours. Chicken is best if grilled in halves (holds the juices better.

    Marinade has all the right ingredients! You can add a bit of soya sauce to the marinade - that will help it penetrate the meat better.

    Oh, and Just missing one essential ingredient for Authentic Jamaican Jerk Chicken = Pimento Wood smoke (wood from the Jamaican allspice tree.
    If you've been to Jamaica and have tasted their Jerk Chicken, you know this - straight out of the barrel smoke flavor.
    Irie Mon !
