Origin of modern day Jamaica jerked chicken
by John Blenkiron
(Runaway Bay, Jamaica & Vancouver, Canada)
boston jerk style chicken
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?

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.
