Ok.. so I may have mentioned.. .though I can not remember.. that I am having a "gathering" .. I dont like to use the word "Party" because I am in my 40s and in my teens and early 20s a party was.. well.. I am sure most of us have an idea of what a "party" was back then.. so I try to use the term "gathering" to sound fancier and more mature... but really.. who am I kidding there will be plenty of beverages and food.. just not that other "special herb" so many "experimented" with... anywho....
I went to the local Giant supermarket because they have a special this week on pork.. $.99 a pound...yeah.. damn good price I think... and wanted to get a pork shoulder to smoke to try out the Jeffs dry rub that I just bought ( yeah.. I read most of the thread over there relating to " $20 .. a bit steep for a recipe" and I figure.. if they guy is charging $20 for it... and reading everywhere the many good reviews for it.. it has to be good... and further as it was stated..you can spend $10 for a one use prepacked rub.. this one.. I can make a heap of it.. put it in my foodsaver vac bag chuck it in the freezer and I am way ahead of the rubbing game... ok.. I am way off my original thought already.. sorry fellas...
ok.. so as i was walking through I noticed they have Mango, Peach, Pear and Guava nectar on sale as well .. .5 for $5 (1 qt boxs)
and the Pear and Mango caught my eye and mind and made me immediately start thinking... Mango... I LOVE...Pulled Pork.. I LOVE...I HAVE to be able to put these two together somehow. I picked up a box of the peach, Mango, and Pear...and thought.. the fellas at SMF will have to have used Mango nectar at some point...I searched and found nothing that addressed it.
Question 1: anyone use Mango as an brine, injection, spray, in the water pan.. anything???
Question 2: care to share it with me and the world how you utilized it as well as how did it turn out?
