Jerk-style cooking was invented by the Maroons, a group of brave Africans who escaped enslavement in Jamaica. The merging of African and indigenous Indian techniques created this Caribbean BBQ tradition. Usually thought of as a wet paste or marinade often used to season chicken, this aromatic spice rub replicates many of those flavors with ease. This highly aromatic spice blend is especially wonderful on chicken, fish, and lamb, but would be delicious on pork, beef, and vegetables. Or stir a spoonful into your next batch of couscous!
