Forget gentrified jerk. For the hardcore stuff—cooked long ‘n’ slow over smoldering green pimiento twigs— seek out Boston Jerk Centre, near Port Antonio, the spiritual capital and birthplace of the genre. Get a half-pound of pork marinated in a Scotch bonnet chile-and-spice paste so fierce not even an ocean of Red Stripe can douse the fire.
