Very good recipe! After trying this the first time, I doubled the cayenne pepper for a really good approximation of Jamaican jerk spices. (But I would recommend trying the recipe as written before adjusting the pepper.)

Very good recipe, but if you want a hotter kick, add habanero peppers. One diced pepper will make it hot, so the more you add, the hotter it gets. I will definitely make it again.

This marinade has a wonderful flavor, BUT is not hot enough to be considered "jerk" (well at least for our gang). I brought it to a bbq & everyone loved the chops, even my husband who is not really a "marinade guy", because they were very tender. Even though I doubled the cayenne, it still wasn't close to hot, I'll add some red pepper flakes, or a jalepeno next time, but they really were yummy and there will be a next time! Thanks Marvin!
