    Got a cupla mangos about a week ago, were hard as a rock. Put them in a brown paper bag and i could start to smell them towards the end of the week so i knew it was time to give these abt's a shot... Jalepenos from the garden, a mix of green to bicolor to full red ones... dunno why i didnt take a pic, but here they are on the smoker. Is the last you will see of them. lets just say a slightly picture challanged thread. Happens when chit gets eaten before a camera is thought about...

    I have had this porketta seasoning i got a while back and never tried it till today. Victim today is a butt just over 4 lbs.

    found these two guys loittering in the cupboard.....

    on the smoker...

    smoker pretty much full.

    so had the ABT.s for snack... didnt have any foil so figured i would give the ribs and the butt a shot without foiling. mixed up some SBR's with some apple juice...used it as a mop on the ribs and the butt. here are the finished ribs. about 5 hours at average 230-240 degrees and used cherry for smoke. i pulled the porketta when the ribs were done and finished it off in the O.


    had the ribs for supper but had to wait on the porketta. here it is when removed from O at IT of 190.

    and here it is torn up..... had real good flavor, lotsa fennel seed in the mix so had that licorice type hint that is also found in italian sausage.

    i am planning on a sammie for lunch tomorrow with some of my freshly made kraut...

    thks for checking my pics

    Very nice smoke! I love Porchetta! (I've seen it spelled porketta and porchetta) I did some a little while back after seeing it on Food Network. I want more, I just love fennel with pork, mmmm. Your food looks amazing, the mango ABT's sound perfect. Sweetness of mango with the heat of the pepper and salt from the bacon! Sounds about perfect to me! Thanks for sharing!

    I made my seasoning based on the recipe from Sara Jenkins, the lady that was featured making this crazy good looking porchetta. I'll find the recipe for you Mark. One of the ingredients was fennel pollen. That stuff is amazing. Erain may know of a mix you can buy though.

    Congrats on a good smoke, and thanks for sharing the Q View. Mango and japs are a very good flavor combo[​IMG]. I have also found the Mad Hunky to be a good general purpose rub. It's all good my friend.
