    I've used the pimento wood chips as well as the pimento sticks and dried leaves, and they're very good. They really do add that distinctive flavor of the jerk you get in Jamaica. I purchased them from the supplier of the source you're considering.

    Tip - Go easy at first until you get the flavor profile you like. Too much pimento can be overpowering.
     
  3. I saw a place on Triple D that uses this and of course got my interest. Thanks for the link.

    The link provided by the OP is only for buyers in Canada. There supplier, and the source for buyers in the US can be found at this link

    They're also the only US source I know of for the best commercial jerk seasoning out there, Spur Tree.

    Nice, I'll be checking them out for sure.  I watched an episode of BBQ Addict on Food Network a couple weeks ago and the theme was Jamaican influences.  They used the pimento wood on the show for one of the recipes but mentioned it's hard to find and if you can't just use cherry or a similar fruit wood.

  12. Jerkmaster is right. I wouldn't order wood directly from Jamaica as there are alot of legal issues with US Customs doing so where you run a high risk of having troubles with Customs and most likely have your products confiscated before even reaching your door. I order my products from http://www.pimentowoodproducts.com .  Products work great and make for an amazing flavor. The process of making jerk is quite different from what we are used to here in the states. I use all 3, pimento wood sticks, pimento wood chips and pimento leaves when I make mine at home. It is by far the best tasting chicken/pork experience I as well as many of my friends and family have ever tried.
     
  13. hi

    Thanks!
