Raspberry Chipotle repost

I've had my egg for about 3 weeks. Best three weeks of cooking I could ever imagine. I've had great success with mexican meatloaf, Guiness soaked ribeye, pork chops, pizza,various vegetables and most recently I tried and loved GFW's Rosemary Grilled Pork Loin. All this success got me thinking. . .[p]I have a wonderful grilling/marinade sauce which is raspberry/chipolte (mesquite smoked). I thought I would prepare a pork loin which had been sliced down the middle w/pockets and then stuffed with fresh raspberries and smoked chipotle peppers. Has anyone ever tried such a concoction or does anyone have any suggestions for items to include with the "stuffing"
besides the berries and peppers. After cooking low and slow with plenty of mesquite chunks I would drizzle the store bought sauce accross the top.[p]Will it work?

    I responded earlier, but might have crashed with someone. Post is gone!!![p]Anyway, I love your idea, and that is what Q is all about. Coming up with new stuff and trying it. Sounds like you already have a nice combo of flavors...the raspberry some nice fruity sweetness, and the fire of the chipotles. [p]Fresh grated ginger might round the mix out nicely, or either garlic or shallots. Of course some fresh ground black pepper, and I am thinkin a dash of cinammon would be nice. Just some thoughts.[p]Sounds great...have fun!!

    bbqman,[p]I can say that I haven't tried this, but berries will give a lot of water. What I generally do when experimenting with pork loins is to take a thick pork chop and try it on just one. You can get a pretty good idea of what will happen with the whole loin. Dried fruits work pretty well with pork, like cherries, peaches, apples, and apricots. Let your imagination guide you, just one at a time until perfected.[p]Z

    bbqman, I often take a raspberry (or cranberry) chipotle sauce, add bourbon (or port) & some brown sugar & then reduce it to baste my babybacks during the last 1/2 hour on the BGE. For a stuffing, I would probably add some dried friut to absorb the raspberry juices so that they don't drain out. ....just my thoughts. JCA

    J Appledog,[p]Is your rasberry/chipotle sauce made from scratch, store bought or a trade secret?[p]Fritz

    Fritz,[p]The raspberry chipotle sauce is store bought "Dan T's Inferno Raspberry Chipotle Grilling in Finishing Sauce"
    Dan T's web page is I want to create a paste/chutney to stuff the pork loin with that would compliment the store bought sauce.

    I bought a huge jug of Dan T's at Sam's a few weeks ago. It's pretty damn good! I was really shocked. Mildly hot and sweet. I have used it on chicken and pork, so far. Really yummy.[p]Bama Fire

  • bbqman,[p]They sell it at Costco also. Great stuff. Perfect with pork loin. My husband likes it so much he dips bread in it![p]
