Cheap Jerk!

The other day one of the local supermarkets had chicken leg quarters on sale for 59 cents a lb. I grabbed a bag thinking "heck yeah, I can make a couple of good meals for under six bucks!" and had in the back of my mind(I knew this because if I turned my head real fast 180 degrees I could see back there ;D)to make Jerked Chicken leg quarters. So When I took the chicken out of the bag I did it with a jerking kind of motion! Before that I made up a lil Jerk marinade for the chicken to lay around in until tomorrow afternoon.
Don't you hate it when you think you have Five Spice Powder in the pantry and find you don't? No problem, I just made some from scratch! Some of the ingredients here fresh from the garden too.

After mixing up nicely in the food processor it gets a good rubbin' into the chicken.

Then into a 2 gal. zip bag for a lil lounging in the fridge.

Always liked jerk, but have found with family members it is an acquired taste. Nice looking birdy there brother.

I couldn't post this last night, the daughter was working on a big paper due today.

Alright so yesterday afternoon I was getting antsy and bored so I got the Traeger heated up to get the chicken cooking slow to start off and I finished it on the Keg.
I had already taken the chicken out of the jerk marinade to let it drain excess juices.

Of course I had to crack open an ice cold beer while waiting for the temp to rise and while the Keg heated up too.

I put these on the Traeger at about 300*

I also lightly grilled some mango slices, pineapple chunks and green onions.

Let the chicken cook slow until they hit 150* internal temp and then on to the Keg to finish.

Almost done but it was hot out there! Time for another cold one!!!

Done and plated with some well, I couldn't decide if I wanted Caribean rice or Black Beans and rice so I did both.

This was a really deliciously flavorful meal. I think I put too much of a dash of that Scotch Bonnet pepper sauce on something. That's where the sweats came from. I was really good though. Having some leftovers for lunch today.
