WARNING! The ULTIMATE Jerk Turkey : Christmas Special 3 | CaribbeanPot.com

Learn how to make the Ultimate Jerk Turkey in your oven, with a few simple steps by Chris De La Rosa of CaribbeanPot.com Using a relatively cheap turkey we’ll show you how to get the most exciting flavors, while cutting back on the required cooking time. With a classic Jamaican jerk marinade we’ll infuse the turkey with traditional Caribbean flavors, before roasting it off in the oven. With the pan drippings we’ll then create a simple but tasty gluten free gravy to top the jerk turkey.
