    Mops are in order. I use a 3 to 1 mix of apples juice and Captain Morgan's Original Spiced Rum. I have also used bourbon in place of the rum. The sugars in the juice, rum, and bourbon will caramelize and add to the bark.

    It's a matter of personal preference. Experiment a little, you'll find out what you like.

    Hope this helps!

    Take care, have fun, and do good!

    Like Meowy said, Experament
    I use Jack and pineapple or apple . A good dark beer. Capn and pineapple.
    You can add just about anything you desire, they also work good on pork.
