I really enjoyed reading this article because it talked about what he experienced when trying jerk. It comes from a Jamaican background, which their food is very spicy. I liked that he tried around different places to taste this jerk so that he could get different opinions on it. He caught my attention when he was willing to visit Jamaica and try different foods down there. It stated that it was served with various Jamaican spices. It also was interesting that he wanted to travel to different places in the U.S. where Jamaicans stayed just so he could try the jerk. In Jamaica, they eat the Boston jerk on the beach while relaxing. I could not imagine as hot as it is down there eating something very spicy on the beach. They state that the jerk that they sell in the states is the cooled-down version of the original. I think barbeque food is the tradition in Jamaica. It seems that the places that are hot, the food always seems to be very spicy. That seems very interesting if you think about it.
