Cooked in an open pit over pimento wood, the jerk preparations here are all authentic and—according to most locals—the best on the island. Traditionally spiced chicken and pork, as well as the less fiery fish, along with rice and peas and festival bread (akin to hush puppies) are served in tin packets to stay or to go. Staying means sitting on wooden barrels and perhaps watching a lively game of dominoes.

Authentic jerk chicken
Man, I thought I'd had jerk chicken before but apparently not. My trip to Scotchies in Montego Bay changed all that. Talk about tasty! And was even better paired with the Red Stripe Bold I washed it down with.
