Caribbean Jerk Seasoning Rub

LeGourmetTV's picture
People immediately think "Hit & Spicy" when they think Jamaican jerk rub. That's not always the case, most chefs pride themselves on a flavorful jerk spice mix with very little heat. Too many hot peppers mask all of the other flavors... So we give you this jerk rub with no peppers; try it out and add the heat later if you need it.
