"Couple a tips: Try to use Scotch Bonnet peppers if possible- if not, Habaneros are a close second.Cook using Pimento leaf - a few inside the bird - a few in the pan with some water (flavorful Steam)MOST IMPORTANT: A handful of pimento wood chips or flakes - wrapped in foil in oven.Without Pimento wood, you can't call it?
