    I was at a local balloon and wine festival yesterday and came across a specialty vinegar booth. They had several unique blends, however the raspberry basil caught my eye...so I stopped at midnight on the way home and got a tiny butt..I will post some Q-VUE later and let ya all know how it comes out...

    I think I am in love!

    i haven't really talked to you much but your idea of a raspberry/basil pulled pork sounds very tasty!
    I look forward to hearing the results!!!

    I am not a person confined to tradition. Although I love traditional food I also love to see someone going different directions with food. Thanks for being original!!!

    sounds good. is the rasberry sauce the stuff they sell at sam's? That is pretty good stuff but pricey..

    can'nt get enough rasberry.

    actually no~ however...I have used the raspberry vinegarette from Sams and love it for salads..and chicken.
    This had basil infused...it tasted really yummy straight...
    What I did instead of using mustard as a base to hold my rub, I used some raspberry preserves with a dash of the vinegar melted together in a small sauce pan melted together to a sticky mess, then rubbed that on my butt then the rub...She is not quite done yet..if she is fabulous I will give ya the rub..if not I will forever hole my peace!! Lots of peeps here to judge!!

    I am betting quite at the supper table good..rasberry is wonderful stuff..I blend berrys with choclate ice cream to make a shake. and use it in dishes at the shack..But shall incorperate it into smoking when ever I get some time off.

    looks awesome. You had me a little worried at first. When you mentioned spending the whole day at the"balloon and wine festival", and on the way home at midnight, stopping to get " a little butt"............well my imagination just took over.
    Glad to see you stayed on track(unlike myself) and performed some wonderful magic with that new vinegar and said little butt.

    I would say that you do like( make that .love) basil according to your recipe! Thats alot of basil.

    As much pork that gets smoked around here, I am gonna hafta try that recipe on at least one of the butts in the future.
