Sietsema's Secrets: Jerk Chicken at Peppa's Jerk Chicken

Welcome to the second edition of Sietsema's Secrets, a new Eater Video series that takes readers inside the kitchens of the city's best ethnic eateries. This one finds us in Flatbush, Brooklyn, where Peppa's turns out some of the city's best jerk chicken. Gavin Hussey, nicknamed "Peppa" for his love of fiery foods, has done so since 1995, when he co-founded Danny & Pepper's, which shared a narrow space with a Korean fish market. Hussey went on to start his own place 10 years later. The secrets of the spice rub he uses are at least partly revealed, amid much chopping and sizzling.
