Took advantage of the most beautiful day all year on Sunday to cook up some protein for the week. 

 

First up was a turkey breast simply seasoned with Trader Joe’s everyday seasoning.

Then I did a couple of chicken breasts to compare a couple of new rubs. I scored the Wicked Que in an exchange recently.

Key lime jerk on the left and Jamaican firewalk on the righ.

Key lime jerk - this one was nice and bright.

Jamaican firewalk - this one had a nice unique heat.

And then on to a couple of pork tenderloins.  Again, a comparison of my take in the bbq exchange.

Smoke stack on the left and sweet Georgia heat on the right.

And I’m set on proteins for the week for quick lunches... had a killer turkey sandwich yesterday.   Not sure what I’ll go with today yet.

Which jerk seasoning did you prefer?

 

I think I liked the key lime jerk better. It was bright and fresh tasting. Not a real traditional jerk flavor though. And the Jamaican firewalk was good, but there was a sweetness to the heat that was a little different. Can’t quite put my finger on it...  Not bad, just caught me off guard from what I was expecting.

Looks like a perfect Sunday KK. They all look wonderful. Did you use any smoke?  And that key lime jerk seasoning sounds intriguing. Seems perfect for poultry.

I love jerk, but cannot bring myself to make my own.  The ingredients are hard to come buy and rather pricey... so I always buy mine.  I’ve been using Got Jerk, and really enjoy it.  Will have to try the Key Lime.

Give Walker's Wood a try.  It is super tasty.  

 

Make a marinade with some seasoning, juice, and a touch of oil and let it sit a few days in the fridge.

Thanks, Ron!  I didn't use any smoke.  Actually, I'm not a huge fan of smoked meats.  I use a little smoke on brisket, ribs or pork shoulder... but that's about it.  

 

The key lime jerk was really good on the chicken - I liked it a lot.

I think a turkey breast really shines on slow kamado cook.  You nailed those tenderloins too.  Great looking cooks KK.

 

Thanks, K'man!  You are 100% right on the turkey shining on a kamado cook.  Actually, since it was so nice I was playing with my gas grill too.  I did one breast on the gas grill and one on the kamado.  Gasser breast was definitely not nearly as moist.  I gave that one to my mom as she prefers her poultry a bit overdone-ish.  And honestly, chicken or turkey that is too moist kind of freaks me out too.  It's a texture thing....

 

Guess I was feeling inspired by @shuley and doing some comparison cooks. :)

 

Gasser breast below - I do love my grill grates....  My mom loved it, but notably not as moist as the kamado cooked one.

x2 on the Walker's Wood. I work with a gent from the island and he says it's one of the closest tasting to authentic that is sold in stores. 

 

 

Thanks guys - going to have to keep my eye out for it and give it a try!
