    Use pear on fish, pork veggies and chicken. Nice stuff, and best when used green and in small amounts.

    Never used pear, but heard good things about it. I'd go for it.

    yep! i've used it! very similar to apple IMO, which is my overall favorite for damn near anything. the way i see it, if it's free, get it. worst case scenario, you "ruin" a rack of ribs (which the dogs will love), and you use the rest for firewood at the campsite.
