Rasta Joe's FAMOUS Jamaican Baked Beans

1 - 28 oz. can Bush's Baked Beans
3/4 Cup Rasta Joe's BBQ Sauce (Rasta uses the Mild)
1 Cup Rasta Joe's Jamaican Pulled Pork (see recipe below)

Combine the above ingredients in a 2-quart baking dish. Bake at 375 degrees
for 40 minutes (longer if a thicker consistency is desired). Serves 6 to 8.

Rasta's Joe's AWARD WINNING Jamaican Pulled Pork

7 to 8 pound Pork Butt
1/2 Cup of Rasta Joe's Jamaican Jerk Seasoning
(Rasta uses his own secret recipe to make his jerk, but you can find
several commercial brands at major grocery stores.)
1 Cup (+ or -) Rasta Joe's BBQ Sauce (Rasta uses Wild N' Spicy)

Score the pork butt in 1 to 2 inch cubes. Rub the scored pork butt with 1/4 cup
of Jamaican Jerk Seasoning. Let the rubbed pork butt marinate for at least 4 hours
(Rasta lets his marinate over night). Put the whole pork butt on a rack placed
inside a pan. Cook uncovered in the oven at 350 degrees until internal temperature
reaches 185 degrees (or until butt is soft to the touch). Remove the pork butt from the
oven and cool until it can be handled. Pull the pork butt apart into pieces.
Add remaining 1/4 cup of Jamaican Jerk Seasoning and mix well.
Slowly start adding the 1 Cup (+ or -) of Rasta Joe's BBQ Sauce and mix
well. Consistency should be firm enough so that it will sit on a sandwich
bun nicely. Serves 8 to 10.

Rasta's BBQ Chicken Pizza

Pizza Dough Ingredients:
2-3/4 cups of flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons tepid water
1/2 cup flour (for work surface)

Pizza Dough Directions:
Dissolve the yeast in the water and let it stand for 10 minutes.
Using a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt and then
mound it up. Make a hole in the middle of the mound and fill with
the yeast mixture. Use a circular stirring motion until a dough forms.

Prepare a work surface with a light dusting from the 1/2 cup of flour.
Place the dough on the work surface and knead until smooth,
(approximately 10 minutes) or until the dough forms a ball.

Place the dough in a large bowl that has been brushed with the olive
oil. Cover and let the dough rise for 1 to 2 hours, or until double in size.

Put remaining 1/2 cup of flour on the work surface. Place the dough
onto the work surface and press it down into the desired shape. To
achieve desired thickness, slowly work all around the eges by pulling,
lifting, and stretching the dough. For a thin crust, flatten to about
1/4 inch. For a thicker, softer crust flatten to about 1/2 to 3/4 inch.

Slightly roll the edge of the dough to form a rim. Place the dough
onto a baking sheet and cover with a towel in order to let it rise again
to double its size (about 20 minutes).

Pizza Sauce Hot! Mild! Sweet!

Spread one of Rasta Joe's Award Winning BBQ Sauces over the top
of the pizza dough. The amount you use is a matter of taste.

Pizza Toppings

Top Rasta Joe's BBQ Sauce with mozzarella cheese...or any of
your favorite cheeses. Rasta loves 'Goat Cheese' on his pizza!
Again, the amount you use is a matter of taste. Place cubed,
shredded, or strips of cooked chicken on top of the cheese, along
with any of your other favorite toppings. Rasta uses black olives,
onions, and mushrooms--yum!

Cooking Instructions:

Place the pizza in a preheated 450 degree oven and bake for 10 minutes.
Reduce the oven temperature to 400 degrees and continue to bake
until the crust is golden (about 8 to 10 minutes). Serves 4.

Rasta's Grilled BBQ Potato Chips

2 Idaho Baking Potatoes 1/4 cup olive oil

Peel the 2 baking potatoes. Cut the potatoes lengthwise into paper
thin slices. Put the potato slices in hot salted water, stirring to
separate the slices. Allow the potato slices to stand in the water
until pliable (about 4 minutes).

Roll each potato slice and run a skewer through the middle of the
rolled slice. Allow about 1/2 inch space between each slice placed
on the skewer. Carefully brush each rolled potato slice with olive oil.
Place the skewers on a skewer rack over hot coals. Turning
frequently, cook 10 to 15 minutes, or until potatoes are crisp.
Drain excess oil by placing potatoes on a paper towel.

Arrange the chips on a serving plate surrounding a bowl of your
favorite Rasta Joe's BBQ Sauce and start dipping!! Serves 8 to 10.
