Thursday Podcast: Uncle Joe's Jerk Chicken

Finding really authentic Jamaican jerk chicken in Chicago isn't easy.‚  Some people swear by Daddy O's Jerk on the South Side, but for my money, I'll head to one of the four (soon to be five) Uncle Joe's Jerk restaurants on the South Side.‚  Owner Joe Niesh and his wife have somehow captured the flavors I recall from eating the tongue-searing jerk on Boston Beach in Jamaica, and they've even started bottling their homemade jerk sauce!‚  Check them out at Uncle_Joes_Jerk
