    1/2 cup ground allspice berries
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar(original called for 1/2 c + )
    6-12 garlic cloves (I accounted for 12 )
    4 to 6 scotch bonnet peppers ( I accounted for 4)
    1 tablespoon ground thyme or 2 tablespoons thyme leaves
    2 bunches (or 12 ) green onions
    1 tsp cinnamon
    salt and pepper to taste
    2 tablespoons soy sauce to moisten


Place allspice, brown sugar, garlic, scotch bonnet peppers, theyme, green onions, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, pepper, and soy sauce in a food processor and blend until smooth.

You may use allspice berries, if available, but use enough to give the equivalent of 1/2 cup ground.(Allspice berries and scotch bonnets are key ingredients.) Keep this sauce refrigerated and it will keep forever.Feel free to increase the hot peppers and garlic.

Rub the meat (chicken, pork or beef) with the seasoning.If using a pork shoulder, score the fat and rub in.With chicken, be sure to rub under the skin and in cavities.Can also be used with fish, buse a firm fleshed fish like grouper.

Marinate overnight.Grill over a low fire until done. Charcoal is best, but not essential.Meat will be smoked "pinkish" when done, and the skin will be nice and dark.

Makes about a 1 1/2 cups or 24 tablespoons
