Recipe Notes

There are a lot of dry rubs on the market very similar to this jerk. There’s essentially nothing in them but flavor so you can use almost as much as your spicy palate will allow. Many do have more salt in them than this recipe so check the Nutritional Facts carefully. If you can not find dried chipotle peppers, use 2 teaspoons of dried chipotle powder.
