IF you do a search here for jerk chicken, you'll find a lot of info on preparing it and your own jerk seasoning mix.

It's easy to make on your own, and, like Andy said, there several threads discussing it and providing recipes.

If you don't want to make your own jerk paste, Walkerswood makes a good one, which probably will taste a bit more authentic than A1. They sell it in my supermarket near the Goya stuff.

If you use real Jamaican spice mixes, you'd better be prepared for a "Spice Kick"...

whatever mix of spices you end up using, you must include allspice (pimento)
