"The joys of the table belong equally to all ages, conditions, countries and times; they mix with all other pleasures, and remain the last to console us for their loss."
-Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, Gourmond
There are a lot of dry rubs on the market very similar to this jerk. There’s essentially nothing in them but flavor so you can use almost as much as your spicy palate will allow. Many do have more salt in them than this recipe so check the Nutritional Facts carefully. If you can not find dried chipotle peppers, use 2 teaspoons of dried chipotle powder.
Chipotles are actually jalapeno chilies that have been smoked and dried. The intense flavor is spicy and has lovely undertones of smoke, chocolate and sweet peppers. If the peppers are not going to cook for very long, I will often soften them by steaming for about ten minutes.
Usually found in specialty markets (and more often now in your corner grocery store), dried chipotles are also sold packed in cans in adobo which is a spicy sauce made of vinegar, dried chili peppers, herbs and spices.
