Jamaican Jerk Marinade

This is a slightly tweaked version of The Spice House's traditional jerk sauce recipe, submitted by long-time crew member Jennifer "JR" Statz. Mix this Jamaican jerk marinade recipe up the night before your barbeque party, and you'll be ready to go straight to the grill.

Wash and cut the chicken wings. Cut each wing at the joints, throw away the wing tips, and you'll get two finger-lickin' pieces per wing.

Mix the marinade ingredients together, pour over the wings, and refrigerate overnight (at least 4-6 hours, and up to 2 days). Zip lock bags make great disposable marinating containers. Throw the left-over marinade away. Grill as desired.


This marinade works for other cuts of chicken--any poultry really. It's also great for fish, but you don't need a long marination time.
