  1. Stir sugar, onion powder, thyme, allspice, black pepper, cayenne pepper, salt, nutmeg, and cloves together in a small bowl for seasoning mix. Transfer rub to a small airtight container, reserving 1 tablespoon in a bowl for pork. Add coconut to the remaining 1 tablespoon seasoning; stir to combine.
  2. Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Thread pork chunks onto the skewers. Brush pork with oil, sprinkle all sides with seasoning mixture, and place in the air fryer basket.
  4. Cook in the preheated air fryer until an instant read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat reads 145 degrees F (63 degrees C), 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, mash 1/3 of the mango in a medium bowl. Stir in remaining chopped mango, black beans, red onion, lime juice, honey, cilantro, salt, and pepper. Serve salsa alongside pork skewers.
