The Smokey Joe Sauce Company - Jerk Marinade

I like the taste of jerk, but I find most of the commercial versions of this Jamaican flavouring tend to be a pale imitation of the real thing of which there are lots of different versions, but they all have a few things in common, a complete depth of flavour with no fillers and they are all rich, warm and fragrant with no shortage of spices.

On finding a jerk seasoning from the Smokey Joe Sauce Company, I was not expecting to much from a UK made product.

As I opened the jar the smell was fantastic, taking me back to the Caribbean, and beach barbecued chicken, it is a rich aroma of fruity Scotch Bonnet, and the Allspice that fills my nose.

I tried dipping some bread into the paste and the flavour is as good as the smell, but not I can also taste the thyme and spring onions.

Ingredients – Scotch Bonnet Chillies, Spring Onions, Fresh Thyme, Allspice, Malt Vinegar, Salt, Sugar, Herbs and Spices.

I was going to photograph cooking this on chicken on the BBQ, but I got a bit carried away and there was not a lot left to photograph (opps Sorry, I will try again).

This jerk was created by Joe & Nicola Knight who run The Smokey Joe Sauce Company and if born from their passion of Caribbean Island cuisine which they enjoyed during there travels around the islands.

A more enthusiastic couple you could not wish to meet, I visited their stall at GrillStock in Bristol and sampled the jerk again as well as their Bajan Seasoning which while not hot is also truly excellent.

You can order online at www.smokeyjoesauces.co.uk or find on the site a list of local stockests, at £3.10 for a 200g jar this is good value for money.

P.S. I almost forgot to mention this jerk has also won a Taste of the West Bronze Award, I think I would have given it a Gold.
