This recipe for Dimples BBQ Chicken, a type of jerk chicken, is based on a recipe from Fastina Sherman who was?/is a chef at Boar Hill outside of Kingston, Jamaica. The page is a torn cookbook page of unknown age that I think is from the BBQ Bible from 2008 maybe. I found it among my cousin’s things when we were rehabbing the House From Hell and saved it because it sounded so good. I kept the flavors virtually the same, but converted it to the oven.
