SOMETIMES it seems the only thing BBQ aficionados enjoy more than eating the stuff is arguing about it. To sauce or not is a question that could easily spark an entire evening of sparring across a picnic table.
Gary Feblowitz, Founder of Exotic Wood Chips, LLC. today announced that his company has achieved the status of the only approved US importer of Jamaica sourced Pimento Wood, leaves and charcoal. This achievement took Feblowitz seven years to achieve because of all the regulations both in the United States and in Jamaica.
It’s no secret that both charcoal and wood pellets are extremely popular and affordable fuel sources for grilling. Pellet grills in particular have become more popular in recent years, and because of this there’s been an increase in quality and variety when it comes to wood pellets for smoking.

Use by the tainos to prepare food, pimento grows elsewhere including Mexico, Central America, Cuba and Hispaniola but Jamaican pimento is regarded as best, and up to recently, had a virtual monopoly on world markets.
The handsome tree of the myrtle family (closely related to the Bay tree) but is widespread on the limestone derived soil of central parishes, especially St. Ann, thriving at lower elevations.
The tree grows 7-15 meters in height and its characteristic light-coloured bark peels easily from the trunk.
Have You Had Authentic Jamaican Jerk?
Are you a fan of spicy Caribbean flavors? If so, you have probably tried Jamaican jerk. You’ve at least heard of it, right? Jamaican jerk is a style of meat smoking that is unique to Jamaica. You might call it the Jamaican version of barbecue. A lot of places these days have a jerk dish on their menu to give their menu a little spice (no pun intended). Not a lot of them are making authentic Jamaican jerk pork, though.
Blessings in disguise can appear in, well, lots of disguises. When one arrives on the island of Jamaica, you might be more likely to recognize, then seize upon it. Gary Feblowitz and a group of friends were on a scuba diving trip to the island when disaster struck: ear drum injuries meant they had to remain on solid ground, and would be unable to fly for two weeks. Oh, darn.
