His correct name is Rayando Bennett, but travellers along the south coast and residents of Lacovia in St Elizabeth know him only as 'Jerky'.

Jerky is popular for his offerings of well-prepared jerked chicken back and chicken.

He has vast experience in food preparation and spent several years as a chef in some of the most sought-after eateries in Jamaica's entertainment capital, Negril, Westmoreland.

"I am jerking for the past four years, but gathered my experience from working at Sweet Spice, Grand Pineapple and Cosmo's in Negril," he told WESTERN STAR. "The reviews from my customers were very encouraging, so I decided to come back home and do my own thing."
