Place your seasoned Jerk chicken on the Grill and monitor the flame so that the temperature stays at or about 350 degrees F. Turn the meat as needed, while keeping the flame low. And if the flame gets too high it will prematurely burn the meat. This process takes a little time and patience, but it?s worth the effort.
The meat will be completely cooked in about 45-minutes. If not, keep turning until the meat is thoroughly cooked, remove chicken from the Grill and serve with bread, garden salad, baked potatoes, or plain white rice.
Instead, slice the chicken breast and open the whole chicken wide. In your back yard or campsite, dig a pit 4 feet long by 21/2 feet wide by 2 feet deep. Taper the long ends of the pit about 45 degrees. Place the wood in the pit and add your starter fluid or accelerant of choice.
Light the wood and allow the wood to burn to coal. Scatter the coal so that the heat will distribute evenly in the pit. Place 1/8? steel rods across the pit in a 2? square matrix pattern. Or use the same diamond mesh that?s used in barbecue grills.
Place your seasoned Jerk chicken on the steel matrix; let the chicken cook slowly for about an hour. Turn chicken on other side, baste if necessary, monitor until chicken is cooked.
