Pimento Wood Chips
Pimento Wood Chips are used to smoke Jerk chicken, fish, pork or shrimp during grilling. The pimento chips can be placed in a smoker, smoker box or you can even make a tinfoil pouch and poke small holes in it to create a smoking station for you foods. During the first stages of the cooking/grilling process it is important to infuse the meats with smoke and this can easily be done with the pimento wood chips.
If you have never had authentic Jamaican Jerk before this is a treat that will leave your friends and family begging you to make it over and over again.
Pimento wood is what gives true jerk BBQ its unique flavor. Pimento wood is the main wood that Jamaicans use to jerk chicken. The pimento wood tree gives us pimento berries, also known as allspice, pimento wood for smoking, sticks to make a grill, and leaves to add additional smoky aroma to jerk cooking.
