Gold’s Duck-Mango-Barbecue-Sauce


One of my family’s favorites is Barbecued Brisket with Duck-Mango-Barbecue-Sauce. I slow-cook the meat in the oven two days before, remove any fat and save the pan juices for other recipes. Then all I have to do is heat the brisket on the grill and keep slathering on sauce on until the meat is hot, glazed and crispy. It tastes terrific from the oven too (425 degrees) as I found out recently on a rainy Sunday.

Peel the mango, cut away the flesh and chop it into chunks. Puree the chunks, garlic, ginger and chili pepper in a food processor. Place the mixture in a saucepan.
