"Sandshaker and Marvel,
Thought you would both get a kick out of this one, speaking of BBQ. I wanted to BBQ on the patio while there.
Fell in love with Jambel's jerk chicken and thought I might try making it myself. Got the grill from the hotel management, bought the charcoal, and went shopping for chicken. The market, don't remember the name but it was green, had only frozen chicken. I asked the girl if they ever had fresh chicken in, as I wanted it for lunch. She looked at me funny and said, Yeah, I can get fresh chicken, come back in 45 minutes. Did the rest of my shopping and came back. Chicken was in a plastic bag. Went home and dumped it in the sink to wash it. It still had legs, feet and feathers!!!!!! I about died. My husband laughed so hard he peed himself. His prize picture of me in Belize is me cutting the feet off a chicken and plucking it. Was definately a new experience. Good for a laugh anyway. Aren't we all so spoiled?? Have to say, though. It was the FRESHEST chicken I ever ate."
Most of the beef I saw in the stores was frozen. Fresh Fish is always available!
