  1. Wash and dry the pork.
  2. Heat the allspice berries in a small frying pan, stirring them for 5 minutes.
  3. Crush them in a grinder or a mortar.
  4. Add the escallions, or spring onions or leeks, the chillies, the cinnamon or bay leaves, salt and pepper and grind until you have a thick paste.
  5. Rub the paste all over the pork and leave for at least 1 hour or preferably overnight in the fridge.
  6. Place the meat on the barbecue grill, which if possible should be on the highest notch as the meat needs to cook slowly.
  7. Throw allspice berries and bay leaves over the coals.
  8. Turn the chops half way through the cooking time, the total of which should be 1 hour.

Serving suggestions

Serve with lots of salad and Johnny cakes. Also goes well with rice.

Chef's notes

If your barbecue grill cannot be raised from the coals, you will need to control the heat by only using a few pieces of charcoal at a time.
