You're paying this person to do some work for you.  You are entitled to use your own recipe if that's what you want.  You need her help, you have no obligation to showcase her recipes.  Just explain to her that time is an issue but that your friends and family are really looking forward to your bbq.  I don't know how caterers would feel about this but this is not a restaurant situation, this is a service and unless she doesn't want to then there shouldn't be a problem with...

Don't be put off by us @Gail C we're an enthusiastic yet harmless bunch of foodies. Like I said, if your technique is good that combo can work. I'm with eastshores all the way, the mango does not work in the flavor profile.
Is it pineapple?
