best-selling Jamaican Jerk products for 2012 at the Carolina Sauce online store:
1. Walkerswood Traditional Jamaican Jerk Seasoning, Hot & Spicy: By far our top selling jerk of all time, Walkerswood is famous in Jamaica and around the world for producing authentic jerk seasonings, sauces and rubs according to traditional recipes and with uncompromising standards. Their Hot & Spicy Jerk Seasoning is a classic jerk paste or wet rub that you apply to meats, poultry, seafood or vegetables for marinating prior to grilling, roasting, baking or cooking on the stove. A little goes a long way, as this is powerful stuff! Marinate overnight for meats and chicken, or up to 30 minutes for fish, shrimp or vegetables. It also comes in 9.25-lb tubs, perfect for cookouts, family reunions, barbecues, block parties, plus catering, restaurants & other food service applications.
Busha Browne's Authentic Jerk Seasoning: In second place is another Jamaican classic, this time from Busha Browne, which follows colonial traditions in its recipes. Their fiery, aromatic jerk seasoning is a highly concentrated savory paste or wet rub, so you don't need much to produce mouthwatering results.
3. Walkerswood Spicy Jamaican Jerk Marinade: Similar to Walkerswood jerk seasoning in flavor but in a liquid marinade base for ease of use, this product takes virtually all the work out of making authentic jerk meals at home. The marinade will penetrate the meat or poultry to infuse it throughout with that marvelously complex jerk flavor and spicy heat.
4. Walkerswood Mild Jamaican Jerk Seasoning: If you enjoy the richly spiced, multilayered flavors of real Jamaican jerk but prefer milder food that's not fiery-hot, then the mild version of Walkerswood Jerk Seasoning is for you. There's no loss of flavor intensity or ingredient quality -- the only thing missing is the intense heat, and thus it's a great way to introduce kids and curious diners to the flavor of Jamaica without risking burning more sensitive palates.
5. Walkerswood Jamaican Jerk BBQ Sauce: Thick, savory barbecue sauce meets Jamaican jerk in this inspired "fusion" sauce. Sweetened with bananas and brown sugar for mellow flavor that's not cloyingly sweet, and spiced with scotch bonnet peppers, scallions, allspice, thyme and other traditional jerk ingredients, this unique barbecue sauce will coat your meat, chicken, seafood or veggies with wonderful tropical flavor that's medium-spicy and 100% delicious.
