The refrigerator light goes on...

You can use our Jerk Rub recipe or use a commercially made seasoning. If you do, be aware that many of them are really high in sodium, often with salt as the first ingredient. If you are going to use a prepared seasoning, look for a "no salt added" version - ideally one that does not use sodium substitutes, like potassium chloride, instead of salt. Spice Hunters is a national brand that is widely available (here it is at Amazon), and its jerk seasoning has great flavor but no sodium or sodium substitutes.
