After capturing an animal and thoroughly cleaning and gutting it, the Indians placed it in a deep pit lined with stones and covered with green wood, which, when burned, would smoke heavily and add to the flavor. But first, the carcass was "jerked" with a sharp object to make holes, which were stuffed with a variety of spices. The holes also allowed heat to escape without loss of moisture. The results were superb. The meat was not oly wonderfully spiced, but moist and tender. " (Note: Sugar Reef is a restaurant in Manhattan) Seed and finely chop Scotch Bonnet pepper.
