Made this while I was in China and really missing non-Chinese BBQ. Because of my location, I couldn't find a few of the ingredients. I used Chinese vinegar in the liquid and tossed in a quartered onion and a head of crushed garlic. I also added 1/2 cup of bourbon to the cooking liquid along with two cups of chicken broth, instead of water. Instead of chipotle peppers, I used some tiny Chinese peppers that I found in the veggie market and chopped them up really tiny and added them to the liquid as the pork cooked for a bit of spice. For the sauce I made a honey bbq sauce and added the mango chunks, bourbon and regular chile powder in a blender, then simmered it for about 10 minutes and added it to the pulled pork, minus the liquid, mango pits and onion. I didn't leave them together in the slow cooker for 1-2 hours...everything was already cooked. Just until the sauce is basically absorbed.
