Smoke Ring Jamaican Jerk Marinade Print

This recipe has evolved from a bunch of different sources. I have to admit though that I rarely make jerk marinade anymore because I like a couple of commercial brands. My favorites are Walker's Wood and Busha Browne's. Of course, making your own is less expensive.
