Dready, Dready Art and Everything Dready

jerk’s a big thing in my world … outside of jamaica (and even sometimes in Jamaica) it’s most frequently encountered as ‘pan chicken’, cooked on an old oil drum cut in half and turned into a bbq, using coal – this is really smoked chicken/pork with jerk seasoning

jerk jerk is smoked over green pimento stick or green sweet stick above a fire … and so yes it’s still smoked, but the stick sweats out a flavour that it ads to the process and so proper jerk is slightly different … not gonna say is better but is different.

I like jerk, after a few weeks if I haven’t had some I want some, there’s some good jerk around cayman, pass it and the wafting scent of it makes you hungry … but still the minute I touch down in Jamaica I wanna search out a scotchies to eat some good and proper jerk
