  1. Peel mangoes and remove stones. Place stones in a slow cooker and roughly chop mango; set aside. Place pork shoulder in slow cooker; season with black pepper, salt and 1 teaspoon chilli powder. Pour in balsamic vinegar and water.
  2. Cover and cook on Low until pork is very tender, 5 to 8 hours. Once done, remove pork and discard cooking liquid and mango stones. Shred the pork with two forks.
  3. While pork is cooking, puree chopped mango in a blender until smooth. Pour mango into a saucepan with honey, 1 teaspoon chilli powder and whisky. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring frequently, until mango has reduced and darkened slightly, about 10 minutes. Stir in barbecue sauce and remove from heat.
  4. Return shredded pork to the slow cooker and stir in barbecue-mango sauce. Cover and cook on High until pork absorbs sauce, 1 to 2 hours.
