Jerk Pork
Ingredients

5 lb Pork

Seasoning:

1 onion
1 cup escallion
5 cloves garlic
2 tsp. fresh thyme
1 scotch bonnet pepper without the seeds

Jerk marinade:

5 tsp. salt
2 tsp. sugar
2 tsp ground pimento
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ground mace
1 tsp. black pepper

Directions
Rub in seasoning on pork. Leave for about 1/2 hour.

Rub on jerk marinade and leave to marinate for at least 5 hours (overnight is better.)

Prepare grill, and barbecue pork, until cooked, or put in hot oven 400 deg. F. for about 20 minutes. Lower oven temperature to 275 deg. F. and allow to cook slowly until done.

Chop into small pieces when ready serve.

Tip: Allow a teaspoon of salt to a lb. of pork (use 5 teaspoon salt to 5 lbs of pork - a lot of salt is used, both for taste and as a preservative.) Remember 'the juice should run clear, but it should still be there.'
