Now, I know next to nothing about what's in Jerk seasoning. I think it's Jamaican, and my understanding was that it had something like a mild curry flavor. In the case of Boar's Head's Jerk Turkey, it's apparently a chile-heavy dry rub.
The heat blast was a shock when I bit into my lunchtime turkey sandwich. Boar's Head makes some tasty spiced meats. Their Salsalito Turkey and Blazin' Buffalo Chicken come to mind. Neither of those are as hot as the Jerk Turkey. So it made my brown bag lunch a lot more intense than I was expecting. I usually have a high spice tolerance, so make sure you know what you're getting into if you're thinking about buying some of this fiery turkey. I recommend trying a sample first.
Follow-up: I just did a Google search and learned from its Wiki page that one of jerk seasoning's two main ingredients are Scotch bonnet peppers. This one's on me, folks. Lesson learned!
I bought some last week and made a sandwich, not knowing what to expect
It was SO hot that 2 hours after I ate it my stomach was on fire and my insides were literally burning up
Ended up with burning diarrhea and then had rectal bleeding for the next 3 days every time I went to the bathroom
Thanks, but I'll stick to their Ham and Oven Gold Turkey which can't be beat...
I'm sorry to hear about the rectal bleeding, buddy.
Thanks for the tip! I think you've cracked the code to making the Boar's Head jerk turkey manageable. Now you've inspired me to experiment with some other combos. I bet the honey maple turkey would go well with the Boar's Head Salsalito turkey and buffalo chicken, too.
