Origin of modern day Jamaica jerked chicken

QUESTION:


In my youth in the 50s there was no jerked chicken outside of Portland. It spread up the coast and then across the island then around the world.

I heard that it was first made as we know it today in Boston Bay (Boston Jerk) by a man named Tippy.

Old timers in the area all mention Tippy. Does anyone know anything about this unsung hero of Jamaica and his secret sauce recipe?




ANSWER: April 08, 2011 by Wellesley

Hey John,

Great and interesting question! I would love to know the full history myself!

I'll post the question on the site and hope that someone with some knowledge will share it with us; both of Tippy and of the Jamaican style of Jerk.

It should make a very interesting story; someone could grab the opportunity to document this in a book!

Thanks for bringing it to the fore John.
