If you are anywhere in Montego Bay and you are anxious to try serious jerk chicken or pork, do not miss THE PORK PIT. Anyone can tell you how to get there. You order at one window--get drinks at another area, sit down at rustic picnic tables and enjoy!! You can buy their jerk seasoning paste in jars to take home. Great with Red Stripe beer--don't miss this place.If you are wondering what to do with your genuine Pork Pit seasoning when you get home with it--read next entry.

1 T. honey

Place in large ziplock bag with cut up chicken or country-style pork ribs. Marinate in the refrigerator 1-2 days, turning a few times a day. Bar-be-cue over hot coals. Marinade recipe can be doubled or tripled.
