I found a recipe in a John Wayne grill book for ribs but I don't see why it will not work on chicken. I would like to know your recipe if you don't mind sharing.

Yeah stripping thyme is a pain in the butt. You work and work just to get a 1/4 teaspoon. Lmao

I don't mind sharing at all.  I've never had jerk chicken, but the marinade smelled delicious!  The gal who gave me the recipe says her family demands/begs her to bring this when they're having a gathering.  She took a pic of it with her phone.  Let me upload and if you can't read it, I'll type it out for you.

Thanks, going to try it. Looks good.

Just came off the grill and while the flavor is palatable, I find it lacking. Not the pizzazz I was hoping for. IF I do this again, I'll add a few dashes of cayenne, and maybe some honey or brown sugar to the marinade. It's good, just not the full bodied flavor I was expecting. So, heads up before you go to all this trouble!

I noticed the absence of heat in the recipe. Best I ever had was in Jamaica and they use the Scotch bonnet pepper in the marinade. I thinks the basics of the marinade sound good. Like your idea on adding a sweetener, I remember the chicken I had in Jamaica did have a little sweet taste.

I love Jerk Chicken The closest marinade I've found to true Caribbean jerk is made by a company out of St Anne, Jamaica called Walkerswood Its got a bite/kick that isn't overpowering I marinate boneless skinless breasts overnight for full effect and you can either grill or bake in oven which is my preferred method during the week Its available on Amazon if its not carried by your local store I originally found it at Kroger and some Wally world stores I've yet to meet anyone who doesn't like it even my grand-kids Hungrysmilie eat it

Smoked bone-in skin on chicken breasts, smoked baked beans Southern style, and smoked red beans and rice with Andoullie sausage chunks, and a small salad.(I got a new smoker for Father's Day in case you hadn't guessed).

Smoking is a slow process, which lends itself to massive consumption of cold beer. I hate that.
