Shrimp or Pork
Put shrimp in plastic bag with above - leave about three hours - drain. Brush Shrimp with melted butter - smoke in Camerons smoker using 2 tablespoons of alder wood chips for about 25 minutes. (This recipe can also be applied to pork fillets about 1/2" thick in place of shrimp).

Jamaican Jerk Spice
This spicy mixture is a common used in Jamaica for seasoning pork or chicken. This rub is sometimes dry and sometimes more of a paste. The mixture can be stored in the refrigerator for at least 3 months.

Crush the whole cloves and the allspice in your mortar and pestle (we used the mortar to grind our pepper as well). Place the spices along with all the other ingredients in the bowl of your food processor. Blend for a couple of minutes until the mixture forms a slightly coarse paste.

This paste will store 2 -3 months in your refrigerator.
