The Best Jerk Chicken

This Jamaican Jerk Chicken is one of those phenomenal recipes that just pops so much, everyone will be asking for the recipe.  It is a little bit spicy but the heat can be completely controlled so that you can dial this in to your specific tastes by swapping out different peppers and lowering the Chile and cayenne content in the Jerk Seasoning.

How to Carve a Whole Chicken

If you’re going to Carve a Whole Chicken, you better be sure you know what you are doing.  Though, there’s really nothing to it once you know how but I’ve seen some really sloppy cuts in my time.  The last thing you should want is meat left on the bone.  I like to get what I pay for and I’m not interested in throwing anything away that can be eaten.  Even the scraps can make a nice sandwich.  Anyone that’s had leftovers after Thanksgiving knows what I’m talking about.  So I’ve put together a little step by step tutorial in real time, no editing, on how to carve a whole chicken.
