Our friends Nate and Le Tonia are Dove Chocolatiers. Last week he sent me some of Dove’s BBQ seasoning, the Chocolate Fig Balsamic Vinaigrette, Sweet’N’Spicy Cocoa Rub and their Sweet’N’Smoky Chocolate BBQ Sauce. Patti and I both like our chocolate and Patti loves Dove’s high quality. So, we started thinking about this. My first thoughts were chocolate syrup on BBQ. Not real appealing at first glance. But, this stuff is “top drawer”. The vinaigrette is sweetened by the fig with a mellow almost after taste of chocolate. It would, of course, make a fine salad dressing. Think about it as a marinade where it imparts the subtle flavors of sweet chocolate into your meat. The rub was a big surprise to us. It looks like cocoa powder, but it has a spicy kick that slowly grows on you. Great, not hot, but you know it’s there. It blends well with the chocoalate. And why not? A lot of Mexican dishes use cocoa because it’s good stuff. We are going to use a lot of this. With the Sweet’N’Smoky Chocolate BBQ Sauce I was expecting a chocolate tomato thing. Again, a nice surprise! I was treated to a thick smoky tasting sauce with shades of chocolate. We matched these up with pork tenderloins. The pork was mild enough to let the seasoning shine. I am thinking chicken next or some kabobs.
