Try it with a dry white wine instead of the vinegar and follow your   
recipe mostly works in all cases when you want to replace vinegar.

Subject:  [CH] Emus & some chile stuff

Oddly enough, southeast Kansas has become a hot bed of Emu ranching.  I
know a bunch of guys who made big bucks selling breeding pairs of Emus.   
also know a bunch of guys who have lost their butts.  Apparently there is
still little commercial market for the meat, but the oil & leather seems   

Chile related stuff to stay on topic--  My 3 y.o. habs didn't make it
through this winter.  Really disappointing.  I'm not entirely sure what
went wrong.  These plants were transplanted back and forth a couple of
times, maybe the last time the shock was just too much.  I think I'll   
the potted ones in the pots and let the ones in the garden go this year.
 Since my non-CH wife left I'm going to expand both variety and quantity   
peppers planted in the garden this year.

I found a baste recipe & would appreciate some input.  What can I
substitute for some of this vinegar?

4 cups pineapple juice
2 cups orange juice
2 cups vinegar
6 chipotles
3 TB cumin
2 TB cracked peppercorns

Simmer & reduce quantity to 1/3.

Seems too vinegary for my tastes.  Haven't tried it with any other
