To prepare Uncle Clarence BBQ's Calypso Heat Smoked Jerk Chicken, start by cleaning and drying a whole chicken. Then, generously rub the chicken with olive oil and Uncle Clarence BBQ's Calypso Heat inspired jerk seasoning mix, both inside and outside of the bird. To infuse maximum flavor, let the chicken marinate for at least 4-6 hours, or ideally, overnight.

Smoke the chicken at 275 degrees Fahrenheit for roughly 4.5 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit. For the first three hours of smoking, use apple wood to impart a smoky flavor. Although pimento wood is traditionally used when smoking jerk chicken, apple wood is an excellent alternative as it will not overpower the meat.

After smoking, allow the chicken to rest before serving. To enhance the dish with authentic Caribbean flavors, add green seasoning, fresh thyme, green onions, parsley, and 1/2 scotch Bonet peppers to the marinade. Bon appétit!
